DFC Lancashire is delighted to announce that director, Robin Kershaw, has been invited onto the judging panel for the Wedding Venue of the Year award at this year’s Lancashire Tourism Awards.
Taking place at Blackpool Tower Ballroom on Thursday, November 9, the Lancashire Tourism Awards celebrates the success of businesses, partnerships and individuals across Lancashire in the tourism sector.
Robin Kershaw, director of DFC, wedding host and DJ said,
“DFC looks after the entertainment needs of over 1200 weddings each year and therefore spends a huge proportion of our time in wedding venues.
“We are in a privileged position working directly in venues and see the dedication of staff. There are some true unsung heroes in this sector. They not only go out of their way to ensure that the most important day of someone’s life is unforgettable, but they put Lancashire on the map in doing so.
“I am honoured to judge this prestigious category.”
Robin will join other judges at Blackburn Rovers home ground on 18 and 19 October to interview the finalists in the Wedding Venue award.
Ruth Connor, Chief Executive of Marketing Lancashire said, “The response to this year’s Lancashire Tourism Awards has been outstanding, testament to the quality and variety of tourism experiences and exceptional hospitality businesses on offer to the 67million visitors now enjoying short breaks and holidays each year in Lancashire.
“The tourism industry is vital to the economic health of the county and deserves a dedicated event that rewards and celebrates everyone who contributes to the success of Lancashire’s thriving £4.13billion visitor economy.
“Those who have reached this stage of the competition are to be congratulated, as applications increase each year and the field of competition grows. We wish all the finalists the very best of luck and look forward to sharing their success, with the support of colleagues across the industry, at a spectacular event in the country’s most famous ballroom, in the UK’s favourite seaside resort, Blackpool.”
