FLBC BUSINESS AWARDS 2021

    

Proudly sponsored by,

 

We are thrilled and excited to announce that the FLBClub Business Awards 2021 will be presented by The Barn Theatre, Cirencester in a professional streamed event on Saturday 27th February 2021 at 7pm. There’s also bound to be a little bit of Barn Theatre magic to look forward to.

The FLBClub Business Awards event has always been a time to celebrate and recognise the achievements and success of our local businesses. Now, more than ever, it is so important to applaud those businesses that have overcome adversity and lockdown restrictions.

This will be the 14th Annual Business Awards and  we believe that FLBClub have been presenting Business Awards longer than any other Chamber or Business Club in the area. However, due to Covid-19 restrictions, these Awards will have to be completely different to all the others that have gone before. Despite being unable to meet face-to-face and the negative effect of Covid-19, we feel that it is doubly important and inspiring to have this event go ahead and at absolutely NO-COST to you.

YOUR BUSINESS ACHIEVEMENTS SHOULD BE CELEBRATED!

There will be no Awards Dinner as such this year, but please feel free to treat yourself to a glass of something whilst attending virtually and enjoy an attractive cocktail or mocktail!

The FLBClub Business Awards 2021 is a NO-COST event for businesses to enter and enjoy. This is the Club’s way of supporting local businesses at this difficult time – we will be applauding and rewarding those businesses that have overcome the Covid-19 odds in 2020 and treating all our virtual guests to a good night in absolutely free of charge.
