2023 Shortlists

We are excited to announce the following shortlists for the 2023 Teesdale Business Awards . 

Congratulations to all those who have made it to the final, and thank you to the 12 amazing sponsors for supporting the Awards and choosing the finalists and winners.

The sponsors have reported being very impressed with the high calibre of entries and have found it very difficult narrowing down each category to just three finalists. Their chosen winner of each award category will be revealed at a special award ceremony at The Witham 23/11/23.

The winner of each award category will be revealed at a special ceremony on the evening of Thursday 23th November 2023 at The Witham in Barnard Castle.

Tickets at £10 can either be purchased now from The Witham box office by clicking here.  Tickets are limited so don't wait until the last minute!

Details of the Keynote Speaker to follow shortly.
