Congratulations to all the nominees and winners.

Once again we honoured the outstanding achievements of many of Luton's individuals, groups and organisations.  These people are often unsung heroes who willingly give up their time to help others and contribute to our community.  The Luton's Best Awards is our way to thank these people for their outstanding efforts.  We celebrated at a glittering awards evening at The Luton Hoo Hotel on Friday, November 27th 2015. The Luton’s Best Awards are non-profit making and financed through private sponsorship.

2016's awards go live at the end of August and the awards will be on the 2nd of December 2016.
