With less than two weeks to go until the annual awards (November 6), tension is building among those businesses shortlisted.

Phil Vickery MBE – the ‘Raging Bull’ – is born to Cornish parents, and proud to call himself a Cornishman and Englishman. He started his rugby career at Bude and then Redruth.  Capped 73 times for his country and twice a British & Irish Lion, he also captained England at the 2007 World Cup and was part of the historic team that lifted the Webb Ellis trophy in 2003.

Malcolm Bell, head of Visit Cornwall, said: “We are thrilled to have secured Phil as the guest speaker for the awards. Phil has done a fantastic job at flying the flag for Cornwall to a national and international audience.

“I for one am very excited to meet him; although I may have to watch my tongue…I don’t want to end up in a scrum!”

The Cornwall Tourism Awards is being held on Thursday, November 6 at The Headland Hotel, Newquay.
