Launched four years ago to recognise and celebrate the very best lifestyle sector businesses, the annual SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards have grown to become the biggest awards in the county, and the 2021 SGGLA shortlist has now been revealed.
From today, Monday 5 July 2021 to Friday 17 September 2021, members of the public will be able to see the full list of finalists via soglos.com/awards-lifestyle, and vote for their favourites across the 16 SGGLA categories.
Competition for the awards was fiercer than ever this year, with 233 nominations from businesses, while a streamlined awards for 2021 meant less categories and less businesses shortlisted per category – with only the best 125 going through as finalists.
Following this exciting public voting stage, all shortlisted businesses will be invited to attend the official SGGLA 2021 awards evening at Cheltenham Ladies’ College on Thursday 21 October 2021, for an evening of networking, supper and drinks, when the winners of each category will also be revealed for the first time.
The SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards are proudly sponsored by leading firm Willans LLP solicitors (willans.co.uk) once again in 2021.
