The 2023 Pride Of Sefton Awards are searching for someone truly special who has made a truly inspiring or outstanding contribution to life in Sefton over the past two years. 

The Main Award – Pride of Sefton  is sponsored by The Grand on Lord Street in Southport, which is hosting the first ever Pride of Sefton Awards in a glittering ceremony in the Princess Grace Suite on Friday, 28th April 2023.

Mikhail Hotel and Leisure Chairman Andrew Mikhail said:

“The greatest award is the appreciation of the people. It is so important to celebrate all that is good in Sefton and together with Stand up for Southport, we are delighted to be able to offer a platform that will celebrate this. The awards evening is certain to be a spectacular occasion that will be memorable for all the right reasons.”

The Grand, a stunning art deco building on Lord Street in Southport, was opened last year by Mikhail Hotel and Leisure following a £4 million transformation. 

The Grand Brasserie and Chloe’s Bar are on the ground floor with the 250-seater Princess Grace function room and wedding suite on the first floor.

Harry’s Bar and Sky Bar on the top floor are due to open later this year in the next phase of the impressive transformation. 

The Grand first opened in 1924 and is celebrating its Centenary this year having served as an early car showroom, a cinema and a casino. 

It gives visitors the chance to discover true luxury, a five-star experience that will transport you to a world of glitz and glamour of Southport’s yesteryear with unrivalled cuisine and impeccable service in an elegant setting.

People and groups who go above and beyond to make Sefton a special place for all will be presented with their trophies and given thanks in the Princess Grace Suite at The Grand on Lord Street in Southport town centre on Friday, 28th April 2023. 

The unmissable night in the Merseyside events calendar will be presented by actress and radio personality Claire Simmo, and supported by Media Partner In Demand Radio

All those on the shortlist will be invited to a special celebratory meal in beautiful surroundings while the awards are presented, with a night of entertainment planned. 

The first ever Pride Of Sefton Awards are being organised by Mikhail Hotel and Leisure Group and Stand Up For Southport
