5th Victory as 'Family Day Out of the Year'

We're delighted to announce we have won ‘Family Day Out of the Year’ in the 2024 SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards.

This is the second year in a row we've won this award and fifth time winning over the seven years of the award scheme!

The winners of the annual SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards were announced during an exciting live reveal event at The Sub Rooms in Stroud, on Thursday 16 May, compered by Gloucestershire reporter, Steve Knibbs.

This year's awards event brought finalists, category partners, and special guests together in Stroud to unveil the winners across all 19 categories, as well as who had been crowned overall Lifestyle Business of the Year by headline partner, Pro Global.

The competition was fierce, with a record 250 businesses shortlisted; over 22,000 votes cast by SoGlos readers and only the top contenders in each category being recognised as finalists; and the winners and highly commended businesses chosen by a panel of judges, made up of representatives from Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards category partners.

SoGlos explained;

One of Gloucestershire's most accessible and inclusive attractions, Slimbridge Wetland Centre wins the coveted title of Family Day Out of the Year for a second year running.

Slimbridge has plenty of wildlife spotting opportunities, immersive exhibits and fun outdoor activities to spark kids' curiosity.

We're very proud of the hard work of all our dedicated staff and volunteers and so excited to have brought this trophy home to the wetlands for the fifth time!
