Picture House owner up for three business awards!

Kevin Markwick of The Picture House Cinema and Restaurant is a finalist for three business awards.

Sussex Business Awards

The shortlist for the 30th annual Sussex Business Awards has been announced and hundreds of applicants have been whittled down to just fifty-one finalists. As a long established Sussex business, Kevin Markwick, who’s family have run The Picture House Uckfield since 1964, is very honoured to be a finalist for Business Person of the Year.

Kevin said ‘Being nominated for this award is obviously a proud moment for me personally, but it’s also chance for the dedicated hard work put in by my team to gain some much-deserved recognition. A business like ours has many moving parts, and I would be proud to share this award with everyone that keeps it going’.

Representatives from sixteen towns across the county make the shortlist and after a record-breaking number of nominations, judges had an enormously difficult task as the entries were of such a high standard.

The judging panel, chaired by Mike Herd, executive director of Sussex Innovation Centre
commenting on this year’s shortlist said: “Each year the standard of entries gets better and better and this year was no exception.

“This year’s finalists are a stimulating mix of established businesses and new entrepreneurial ventures with a common thread running through them all – resilience and determination to succeed. Congratulations to all the shortlist!”

Winners will be announced at The Grand Brighton on November 29th.
