the world and the incredibly worthy winner of the 2019 Arts & Culture Award was the groundbreaking and inclusive Hull Truck Theatre. The judges were bowled over by the passion and commitment shining through from this pioneering theatre with a unique Northern voice. The visitor economy is, of course, so much bigger than just the leisure market. The White Rose Awards recognise this with the Business Events Venue of the Year Award which was won by Broughton Hall Estate. This highly flexible venue in a fantastic location was hailed for its brilliant and holistic approach to events with excellent sustainability credentials and a focus on well-being. The classic visitor attraction categories perfectly showed off the broad spectrum of things to see, do and experience in Yorkshire, with arts, nature, heritage, food and drink as well as some high-octane physical activities among the nominees. The large winner was the stunning Yorkshire Sculpture Park described as simply world-class, with top quality service and customer care from top to bottom. The winner of the Small Visitor Attraction Award was The Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery which judges called a high-quality experience which is going from strength to strength as it matures along with the whisky! Just missing out in the attraction category,  Hotham’s Gin School and Distillery was recognised in the final new award for 2019 - Experience of the Year. Judges loved its commitment to quality and the whole customer experience, which gives visitors an insight not only into gin but to Hull and the surrounding area too. It was also lauded for promoting other independent local businesses along the way. Which really sums up the aims of these awards, and of Welcome to Yorkshire. A great example of how when we all work together and support each other, our voice is louder and prouder, and the real winner is Yorkshire itself.
