Harrogate’s Hospitality & Tourism Awards 2014

Harrogate’s unsung hospitality heroes were rewarded for their excellence and commitment on Tuesday 17 June during a glittering gala dinner at the Harrogate International Centre’s Royal Hall.

Now in their sixth year, THE awards evening which is organised by Destination Harrogate, was hosted by Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire.

Over 800 nominations were collected before a shortlist of 37 was chosen by judges across nine categories.

One of the most prestigious awards of the night, the Harrogate Ambassador of the Year had a slight twist this year – it was won by former town Mayor Michael Newby and his Consort Clive Kirkham.
