The biggest award ceremony to recognise Birmingham’s nightlife has been launched.
The BOBS (The Best of Broad Street Awards) 2010 will honour the best bars, nightclubs, hotels and restaurants along Birmingham’s Golden Mile.
The awards, now in their fifth year, will culminate in a glittering presentation ceremony at the ICC at the end of January when entertainers, businessmen and entrepreneurs will rub shoulders.
Entertainment this year will be supplied by X Factor finalist Jamie Archer.
Broad Street also houses some of the largest cultural venues in the Midlands.
The Rep Theatre, The Crescent Theatre, Symphony Hall, The Ikon Gallery, Number Nine the Gallery, The SeaLife Centre, Cineworld, Jongleurs and the NIA are all vying this year for the ‘Best Arts and Entertainment Venue’ award.
We are asking Birmingham Post readers to vote for this prestigious award, sponsored by the Post, and won last year by Symphony Hall.
Allan Sartori, marketing director of the Broad Street Business Improvement District, said: “The energy and buzz that our annual awards create is undeniable on the street and within our venues. The BOBS honours those unsung heroes who continually work to make Broad Street the great area that it has become.
“It is the bar workers, the waiters, the local wardens and the others who work long and often unsociable hours to ensure the public can safely enjoy a fantastic atmosphere, fabulous food and drinks and wonderful entertainment.''
There are 23 award categories in total including Best Bar Staff, Best Waiting Staff, Best Door Supervisor, Best Police Officer, Best Manager, Best Chef, Best Bar, Best Restaurant, Best International Restaurant, Best Themed Restaurant, Best Hotel, Best Outstanding Contribution, Best Casual Dining, Best Newcomer and Best Overall Venue.
