Around 200 local industry professionals gathered at the Engine Shed in Lincoln for a night of glitz and glamour on Thursday, June 22 – at the first ever Lincolnshire Health & Beauty Excellence Awards.
The inaugural event, organised by Stonebow Media and MyLocal, placed Lincolnshire’s finest businesses and people within the health and beauty industries into the spotlight to celebrate their accomplishments.
Awards were given across 16 categories, championing community work, outstanding business practice and specialists who go above and beyond for their customers and clients. Our panel of expert judges had the unenviable task of picking 16 winners from over 300 nomination entries.
The ceremony was hosted by local celebrity and television personality Jake Quickenden, best known for his appearances on The X Factor, Dancing On Ice, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and more.
The night kicked off in fantastic fashion with entertainment from The Curious Theatre School, performing a medley of popular hits and Greatest Showman classics. Performers shone with slick choreography and big ballad singing, earning a huge applause from those in attendance.
Between the handing out of awards, guests were treated to a delicious three course meal, magnificently catered by Salted Orange.
On the menu was a stunning 10 ingredient smoked tofu salad starter, a chicken breast coated with panko breadcrumbs – accompanied by Milanese sauce, tenderstem broccoli and anna potato – for main, and the dessert was seasonal berries with rum baba and light whipped ‘cream’ brown sugar caramel.
Events like this would not be possible without the help of our sponsors – so thank you to Tok Agency, Delightful Hair & Beauty, Fizzco, Kenwick Park, The Swallow Inn and Visual Print & Design for all their support in putting this ceremony together.
