Peak FM breakfast show presenters, Ricky and Becky, have been confirmed as the hosts of the Chesterfield Retail Awards 2018.

The pair will host the black-tie awards ceremony at the Winding Wheel on Wednesday 13 June. At the ceremony Ricky and Becky will announce the winners of 15 categories in the annual awards which are organised by Destination Chesterfield.

Only 50 tickets remain for the popular awards ceremony, which last year saw 200 people attend.

Thirty-one Chesterfield retailers and individuals are hoping to claim at least one of the titles, with 14 of them nominated for the first time and 7 hoping to defend their 2017 titles. At the ceremony the coveted overall title of Retailer of the Year, sponsored by East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire), will also be revealed.

Becky, who joined the Peak FM breakfast show earlier this year, said:-

“I am so excited to be hosting the Chesterfield Retail Awards, especially with it being my first time. I’d just like to say a huge congratulations to every business that’s been shortlisted for an award.”
