We’re excited to announce that the Streatham Business Awards is back this year on November 8th, 2022.
We will be celebrating the best of Streatham business at our exclusive awards ceremony at The Odeon, 47-49 Streatham High Road. A drinks and canape reception will be followed by the awards presentation with the evening hosted by Streatham’s own comedian, actor and current star of Hollyoaks, Richard Blackwood.
Our independent judging panel will be looking for businesses that make a positive difference to Streatham and the people that live here, as well as showing good business sense. InStreatham BID Manager, Louise Abbotts, commented: “We last ran the Streatham Business Awards in 2018 so we’re delighted to bring them back after the pandemic. We think it’s particularly important to recognise businesses that have worked hard to survive during Covid so we have introduced a special one off category for this.
