The Whitaker wins Cultural Venue of the Year at Lancashire Tourism Awards 2021

We won the Cultural Venue of the Year at the Lancashire Tourism Awards!

We’re so thrilled and the award is not only because of the hard work and dedication of our staff and volunteers but because of the support shown to us by our visitors since we re-opened last year.

We were nominated alongside the brilliant Browsholme Hall in Cow Ark, Culturapedia in Blackburn, Lowther Pavilion in Lytham St Annes and the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

The ceremony on Wednesday 2 February was organised by Marketing Lancashire, who hosted almost 400 tourism and hospitality partners and colleagues, at the new Orangeraie at Stanley House Hotel & Spa.

The ceremony was hosted by Tez Ilyas, alongside Headline Sponsor UCLan and Destination Sponsor, Blackburn with Darwen Council.
