BOBS 2015 - 1

Entertainers, businessman and entrepreneurs can look forward to a glittering presentation ceremony and a memorable night of mingling and partying in true Broad Street Fashion.The theme for these awards will be Superheroes.

Mike Olley, Manager of the Westside Business Improvement District, said: “The BOBs have always been the talk of the town. The energy, excitement and buzz that our annual awards creates amongst the venues, is second to none and the 10th one will be no different.”

Along with awards such as Best Chef, Best Restaurant, Best Themed Venue and many others being presented, unsung heroes such as Best Door Supervisor, Best Police Officer and Best Manager will be celebrated for their hard work.

Liz Hannam, Head of News at ITV Central said, “We are very delighted to be the media partner for the 10th BOBs. The awards celebrate those businesses and people who continually work to make Broad Street a great place to work, stay, eat and play.”

The BOBs are flying into town like the Caped Crusader to save the Westsiders from the post-party season blues and making Birmingham a better place.
