Jigsaw Performing Arts Schools Announced As National Business Awards Finalist

28 July 2016

By Daniel Jenkins

Jigsaw Performing Arts Schools has been shortlisted for The Business Award for Arts and Creative Services for the 2016 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. Jigsaw is a business in the Creative Industry dedicated to developing performance skills, promoting self-expression and building confidence. For over 20 years, Jigsaw has provided drama, singing and dance classes for children aged 3-18 whilst procuring professional performance opportunities for our students through our agency.

Company Director, Nicola Lander, said: "Words cannot describe how thrilled I am that Jigsaw is a finalist at this year's National Business Awards. My company has come such a long way over the last 20 years and I am incredibly proud of my team's hard-work and commitment. We are all absolutely delighted to have received such an accolade, and we are extremely excited about what the rest of the year has in store." 

The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories. They will now prepare for live presentations to an expert judging panel who will decide the overall winners.

Described as “the Oscars of great British business” by David Cameron, former Prime Minister, this year’s prestigious award ceremony will take place on Tuesday 15th November, at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, where the winners will be revealed.  

Tom Broughton, Group Brand Director of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards said: “Due to the high number of entries for this year’s awards, narrowing the entries down to 140 finalists was a difficult task. But through a thorough and comprehensive judging process, the selected finalists demonstrate exceptional quality and diversity across a range of business sectors within the UK. We are now looking forward to the next step of the process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
