Blantyre Telegraph will host the glitzy red carpet event at the amazing new Carrigans Function suite this Saturday evening, 25th March. The sell out awards show saw 162 people scramble for tickets, which promises to be fun for all the family.

Guests, lucky enough to have tickets will be made to feel most special with a real red carpet and live dancers as entertainment upon arrival as they pick up a complimentary drink. After taking their seats they’ll sit back and enjoy the awards ceremony which will see 15 incredible Blantyre people and organisations receive recognition for their incredible achievements this last year or so, courtesy of some very generous sponsors.

A 5 star raffle is promised, with many wonderful prizes including champers, smartwatches and if a holiday worth £350 is not enough, there’s a top prize worth even more still to be revealed!

A luxury buffet will be served up at the interval, before a night of excellent music and a licensed dance until 1am. It’s shaping up to be a top class event and what’s more it’s going to be raising money for TWO very important local causes.

The purpose of the evening IS to celebrate the accomplishments and talent we have in Blantyre. The winners YOU chose in our February poll, will be rewarded with these quality Oscars (pictured).  However, there’s an added bonus for this event. 50% of monies raised from the raffle will go to MacMillan Cancer Research and 50% will go to Blantyre Community Committee towards the Summer Gala event!

Blantyre Oscars begins at 7pm for 7.15pm. The event will be covered on social media throughout the evening. More information can be found at
