Double awards whammy for World of Beatrix Potter Attraction

Last week was a bit of a pat on the back to the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction team, as we got news that we were in the final short list for not one, but two coveted Cumbria Tourism Awards.

Firstly the exhibition has fought off stiff competition to go head to head with three other tourist attractions for the accolade of ‘Best Large Visitor Attraction’.

Secondly, our highly acclaimed Beatrix Potter musical adventure: Where is Peter Rabbit? is also shortlisted for ‘Tourism Event of the Year’.

We couldn’t be prouder!

As part of the judging process for the Tourism Event of the Year, there is an online voting process – so please show your support and click here to vote for the fantastic ‘Where is Peter Rabbit?’ show!

We are now eagerly looking forward to the grand awards ceremony – and whatever the final result, are very proud of all the staff and creative team behind the scenes who put so much hard work in to make the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction and events at the Old Laundry Theatre so magical.
