The countdown to the 2021 SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards is underway, with an incredible number of nominations received from local businesses putting themselves forward for the county’s biggest awards.
Despite the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, excitement around the fourth annual SGGLA – once again sponsored by Willans LLP solicitors – is at an all-time high. With an incredible 233 nominations submitted by leading lifestyle businesses from across the county.
Streamlined down from 23 to 16 categories for 2021 to make a more focused awards, this year’s entrants represent the best of the best, flying the flag for Gloucestershire’s diverse and dynamic lifestyle sector at a crucial time for the industry.
SoGlos’s judges will now decide on a final shortlist from each category, including Cultural Venue, Family Day Out and Event to Restaurant, Independent Shop and Wedding Venue of the Year, which will be announced on Monday 5 July 2021 – when public voting also opens via soglos.com/awards-lifestyle.
The winners will be announced at the anticipated awards evening at Cheltenham Ladies’ College on Thursday 21 October 2021, which all shortlisted businesses will be invited to attend and enjoy the live reveal along with supper, drinks and networking at the celebration event.
Best of all, tickets to the awards evening are free of charge, ensuring the SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards continue to be the region’s most authentic awards.
In addition to headline sponsorship from Willans, SGGLA is being supported by event partner Oasis Events; drinks partners Hillside Brewery and Cotswold Distillery; and food partner Baz and Fred. As well as event associates Cotswold Gold and Richard Parsons, Gloucestershire’s favourite magician.
