Recognising the awesome in Petersfield!
After a runaway success in 2016, Hometown Festivals are bringing back the way to celebrate everything which is awesome in Petersfield. On Friday 14th July, The Petersfield Awards ceremony evening will take place to honour the best of the best and YOU have had your opportunity to decide who wins.
A star studded* Oscars-style evening will take place at Churcher’s College in Petersfield as the finale of the event and as well as the nominees and winners in attendance, the event will be open to the anybody to attend. Click on the banner below to see the winners collecting their awards and other photos from last year.
Over 300 nominations have been received and the independent panel of judges have decided on their shortlists and in 10 out of the 15 categories, who are worthy of being a winner. Now the voting stage has closed and we have had over 5,000 votes cast over the last 2 months.
All nominations have been received and the judges have deliberated long and hard over all them. A shortlist has been created for every category and yet although there are 15 categories in total in The Petersfield Awards, the judges have decided who is the winner on 10 of these already and CANNOT be voted for by the public.
Four categories; Best Drinking Establishment, Best Eating Establishment, Best Hair Salon and Teacher of the Year have had a short list decided and was open for a public vote until 30th June.
The Event of the Year has had a short list decided by the judging panel and will be voted on during the evening of the Awards ceremony by the guests attending.
All winners will receive a trophy and a certificate on the evening as well as the accolade of being chosen by the very people they regularly see and interactive with in their hometown.
Hometown Festivals would like to thank all the generous local businesses who have supported the event and made it possible for you to celebrate your hometown once again.
Please see all the short lists below .
The next 4 categories below were open to a Public Vote and you have been voting for the last two months but the voting phase is now closed.
* ‘Stars’ are still to be confirmed, but we hope to be having some!
