Sunshine Events Makes Finals First Year Entered


Preston-based events and equipment experts Sunshine Events has made the finals for the Red Rose Awards 2015, Lancashire’s premier business event.

The number one national supplier and owner of fun event equipment has been shortlisted for the ‘Tourism and Leisure Business of the Year’ award, the very first year they’ve entered such awards.

James Sandwell, Owner of Sunshine Events and Director of Fun, said:

“We were super excited to be asked to sponsor the Red Rose Awards this year. It is the annual event where Lancashire businesses can come together and celebrate all that is great about Lancashire and we are very proud to be based in Preston.

“Now, not only are we eagerly anticipating providing our fun photo booth as the evening's entertainment but we’ll be nervously waiting on tenterhooks when the winner is announced!”

The Red Rose Awards are judged by panels made up of independent business experts and sponsors from across the region. According to the judges this year the entries were tougher, the stories bigger and the achievements greater than ever before.

Sunshine Events  now face judging panels at the Red Rose Suite at Ewood Park, Blackburn on 12th February.

Richard Slater, publisher of Lancashire Business View – the magazine behind the awards, said:

“The entries we received this year were stronger than ever, and many businesses across this great county are recording strong performances.
“We are excited at the prospect of bringing the county together at the Winter Gardens on March 12 to celebrate the success of Lancashire business, form new relationships and have a fantastic night out!”
