"Star-studded" Yorkshire Business Awards to be held at newly transformed Leeds hotel

The Yorkshire Business Awards, organised by Variety the Children’s Charity, are returning to The Queens Hotel Leeds on December 10 2021 for a “star-studded event to remember”.

The Yorkshire Business awards are an annual charitable event that have become a premier fixture in the region’s business calendar, organised by the Yorkshire region of Variety the Children’s Charity.

Variety is a globally operating organisation, with the Yorkshire region being established in 1961. The Yorkshire Business Awards have raised more than £3m for sick, disabled and underprivileged children across the region, making a real difference to real lives.

This year’s event will be held at the newly transformed Queens Hotel Leeds, where the event has been historically held for over 25 years.

As the region’s definitive business awards, the lunch is attended by 450 Yorkshire businesspeople, comprising the management of all the public companies headquartered in the region as well as most of the region’s professional advisers.

The awards celebrate the many achievements and undisputed excellence of companies in Yorkshire and have attracted some of the most high-profile speakers in the country, including the likes of The Rt Hon Sir John Major KG CH, Jeremy Paxman, Sir Michael Parkinson, HRH The Duchess of Kent, and Sir Trevor McDonald OBE.

Paul Priest, director of business development at The Queens Hotel Leeds, comments: “We’re so pleased to welcome Variety back to The Queens once again.

“The Yorkshire Business Awards are the largest calendar event of the year and they not only raise awareness of the great achievements of people and businesses here in Yorkshire, but also help to raise funds for a very worthy cause.”

Charlotte Farrington, regional development director at Variety Yorkshire, commented: “We are so excited to be organising the Yorkshire Business Awards lunch once again. This event has been a staple in the Yorkshire business calendar for more than 30 years and was truly missed during the Pandemic.

“I personally cannot wait to see so many new and familiar faces at the lunch, to celebrate the strength and resilience of Yorkshire businesses whilst raising vital money for children living in our region!”
