Chichester Festival Theatre won two gold awards for excellence in the Tourism Experience of the Year and Inclusivity and Accessibility categories as the cream of the South East’s tourism industry celebrated success at the Beautiful South Awards – the highlight of the 2017 tourism calendar. 

The Awards are run by Tourism South East to recognise and celebrate excellence in the industry. Where there are matching categories in the Visit England national Tourism Excellence Awards, the winners have the opportunity early in 2018 to represent the South East nationally.

Nigel Smith, Chief Executive of Tourism South East, said: 

‘The Awards reminded me again of the sheer quality of tourism businesses in the South East. Never mind the UK, some easily stand up to comparison with the very best tourism businesses in the world. All of the finalists can be very proud of what they have achieved through a commitment to reinvestment, training and a relentless drive to be the best.’
