It’s official: The Pantiles has been named one of Britain’s best high streets for the second time! Previously nominated in 2016, The Great British High Street Competition has announced that The Pantiles has also made the 2018 shortlist.
The Great British High Street Awards (GBHS) 2018 is run by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and is sponsored by Visa and supporting partners. The purpose of the awards is to celebrate local achievements in the UK’s high streets and to support the communities in which we live and work.
After a rigorous selection process led by a panel of independent judges, 26 high streets have been shortlisted in the Champion High Street category, which aims to find the UK’s best high street. This is the category for which The Pantiles has been nominated.
All finalists will now battle it out in a public vote, which accounts for 30% of the final scoring, and will then have the chance to impress an expert judging panel in order to be crowned Britain’s best.
The winning entries for the Champion category will be announced on 15 November 2018 at an awards ceremony in London.
High Streets Minister Jake Berry MP says: “Congratulations to all the high streets shortlisted for this year’s Great British High Street Awards. The awards celebrate the great work that is being done to revive, adapt and diversify the nation’s high streets and the quality of entries this year has been outstanding. Over the next 6 weeks they have the chance to impress an expert judging panel as they also battle it out in a public vote for the title of Britain’s best high street. This is a great opportunity to show your support for the hard work taking place on our high streets, so get voting.”
Corin Thoday from Targetfollow said “It is a real honour to be shortlisted for this year’s awards. Our traders, events team, and asset managers are working incredibly hard to ensure that The Pantiles realises its goal of becoming a top national retail, food and beverage and entertainment venue. To be short listed for an award is very encouraging. We are truly proud of what we have achieved up to this point and we are excited to see where we can take The Pantiles next. Please vote for The Pantiles but more importantly, come and experience this wonderful promenade for yourself.”
