A Night to Remember…

The National Final will see the best rural businesses from across Britain come together to celebrate the Great British countryside, and to find out who exactly are the RBA’s national champions!

The evening will begin with a champagne reception, the perfect opportunity to mingle with new, and familiar faces, to catch up with the other winners from your region, and to make new connections.

This will be followed by a sumptuous three course dinner, made with the best of British produce!

Next, the awards ceremony itself will be hosted by none other than Jules Hudson, of ‘Escape to the Country’ fame. The focus of the event, this will include an address by the founders of the Rural Business Awards, Amazon, and several others. The awards will then be presented by our sponsors and judges.

After the ceremony is over, and all the trophies have been handed out, the party will continue long into the night, with the live band ‘The Funtime Frankies’ sure to create a party atmosphere.

So, book your tickets to join us at this prestigious event. It’s going to be a night you won’t want to miss!
