This year we received a record number of votes across all categories, as well as a great response to our new category Customer Service. All our finalists have been voted for by our readers. Once voting closed, our judges gathered to sift through the hundreds of nominations, deliberating long and hard to select three finalists in each category.

 We will now invite our finalists to the glittering awards ceremony on 14th September at The Eden Project, where our winners will be announced. We are delighted to announce our finalists here.

Our fabulous new venue

The Eden Project is a Living Theatre of Plants and People – an educational charity that explores how people can work together and with nature to change things for the better. A visit to Eden will be an unforgettable experience in an epic location. You can travel the world in a day: from exploring our Rainforest Biome, the world’s largest in captivity, and walking through the treetops on our Rainforest Walkway, to meandering through the Mediterranean Biome taking in the sights, scents and sounds. Enjoy music gigs at the Eden Session and our seasonal events for all the family, including Space in the summer, Halloween activities and ice skating in the winter.

The visitor destination in Cornwall, UK, is nestled in a huge crater. Here, massive Biomes housing stunning plants, exhibitions and stories serve as a backdrop to our striking contemporary gardens, summer concerts and exciting year-round family events.

The Eden Project, connects us with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work towards a better future.  With its impressive architecture and inspirational story of transformation from disused clay mine to world-famous global garden, it’s a stunning backdrop for our 2017 awards.
