Great British High Street (GBHS) Awards
The Great British High Street of the Year Awards is an annual competition inviting Town Teams and recognised local partnerships to nominate a high street in their area to celebrate the diversity and services that British high streets provide.
Once an application has been submitted, the Town Team (or local partnership) will be sent a branding pack including material to display in shop windows on the high street. This will raise awareness of the campaign among the local community and encourage individuals to offer their support and endorse applications by directing them to the Great British High Street online portal.
The Awards provide a national platform to:
- showcase success stories and share best practice;
- showcase the diversity of how places are servicing local needs;
- give the public the opportunity to celebrate and endorse their local high street and make the most of what it has to offer; and
- recognise the excellent effort of town teams, the business community, local authorities, the charitable sector and volunteers, and other key partners, in achieving the above successes.
In addition, this year, Visa GBHS Street Teams will be visiting randomly selected high streets during the Awards to promote entered high streets and help local businesses and consumers with activities and giveaways.
The competition has re-opened for 2018. The deadline for applications is 22 August 2018.
