Minster FM’s Ben Fry

“We think North Yorkshire is full of amazing businesses and this is a great chance to celebrate them and all their hard work,” said breakfast show presenter Ben Fry, adding:

  • There is no judging or mystery shopper, it’s all about North Yorkshire customers voting for companies they know and love.

    The awards night is not a stuffy sit down meal, its a chance for companies to bring all their team to the Barbican to celebrate at our Oscars style ceremony on November 13.

    It only takes two minutes to nominate your business and shout about how amazing you are, its free to enter and lots of free plugs on the radio.
