The following is a press release issued by Leicestershire Promotions.

The 2022 Leicestershire Promotions Tourism and Hospitality awards were launched today, June 29, 2022.

Hot on the back of the success of two of last year’s finalists in the national awards, organisers Leicestershire Promotions are encouraging all tourism and hospitality businesses to get involved and apply for the 2022 awards.

Horseshoe Cottage Farm in Cropston won for B&B/Guest House of the year while Brooke Meadow near Market Harborough won for Camping, Glamping and Holiday Park of the Year in the recent national awards. Both businesses went through to the national awards after winning their categories in last year’s regional tourism awards.

Martin Peters, CEO of organisers Leicestershire Promotions said: "We have a strong track record of selecting business for awards in our local heat that then go forward to enjoy major success in the nationals. We support our partners at every stage of the process and there really is no reason why any business cannot have a go."

All the details of how to enter can be found at the tourism awards website. Visit www.goleicestershire.com/trade/leicestershire-tourism-awards.

Closing date for entries is September 9, 2022 and the winners will be announced at a gala awards ceremony on November 24, 2022.
