Oxfordshire Business Awards

More than 400 guests enjoyed an evening of celebration at the Oxfordshire Business Awards.

Now in its 24th year, the awards were presented at the futuristic John Henry Brookes Building at Oxford Brookes University’s Headington Campus.

After an outside reception in the sunshine, where bubbly and canapes were served, guests moved inside for a welcome by awards chairman Paul Lowe and were entertained by television presenter speaker Chris Hollins.

After a dinner featuring Oxfordshire produce, awards were given and there was dancing to live band, The Village Idiots.

The Hawkins Business of the Year Award went to Oxford Space Systems, based at Harwell Oxford.
