Director of Cuffe and Taylor Peter Taylor said: “We are thrilled to have been nominated and in three such fantastic categories.
“We took a huge leap of faith with Lytham Festival this year making it so much bigger than it has ever been before and it was a massive success. This would not have happened without the dedicated team we have behind us and this nomination is recognition for everyone who was involved in Lytham Festival this year from the great team at Cuffe and Taylor to the army of volunteers who do so much to help us at our events.
“It is so important in this industry to do something that makes you get noticed. Clearly people are sitting up and taking notice of Lytham and Cuffe and Taylor and we hope that success continues to grow, and of course we will look forward to the UK Festival Awards 2015.”
Peter and fellow director Daniel Cuffe did scoop Regional Promoter of the Year Award at the Live Music Business Awards in 2014.
And this latest nomination comes just days after they announced they are promoting Rod Stewart’s eight date UK Hits Tour 2016.
Peter added: “The last few weeks have been busy to say the least as we have all been getting ready to announce Rod Stewart’s stadium tour for next year. This was our first announcement for 2016 and we will be making many more over the next few months.
“Last year around 150,000 people were entertained at Cuffe and Taylor events across the UK. In 2016 we are looking forward to welcoming many, many more.”
