Meanwhile, Zen Day Spa and Pure Day Spa are in the running for Spa of the Year and Serenity Beauty and Lalapanzi were both shortlisted for Beauty Salon of the Year.

The Ulster Tatler Awards, in association with Keen’s Furniture, features 13 categories voted for by the public, as well as Awards for Sportsperson of the Year and Celebrity of the Year.

Also up for grabs is the highly-anticipated Lifetime Achievement Award, which has recognised some of the province’s best-loved personalities over the years such as Dame Mary Peters OBE, Brian Friel, Sir James Galway, Gloria Hunniford, Barry McGuigan, Marie Jones, Hollywood actor Ciaran Hinds and sporting hero Pat Jennings who was honoured at the 2019 ceremony.

Shortlists in each category are compiled from votes cast before judging panels of media and industry experts select their winners. 



The winners will then be announced at a glamorous ceremony on 28 October at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Shaw’s Bridge, presented once again by much-loved TV personality Pamela Ballantine.

“The wealth of talent we have here in Northern Ireland is second to none across a wide variety of sectors, particularly the constant flair we see in business, sport and entertainment,” says Chris Sherry, editor of Ulster Tatler. 

“The difficulty in choosing just one deserved winner becomes greater every year and that speaks volumes on just how high the standard is across the province.

“It is fantastic to see a wealth of Northern Ireland talent recognised in the business industry with businessmen and women persevering on to achieve incredible business milestones despite an extremely tough year and a half.

“We are looking forward to marking the 14th anniversary of the Ulster Tatler Awards and, with a stunning new venue and new title sponsor on board, we are even more thrilled to see what this year’s awards bring.



“Hosted once again by our good friend and TV personality Pamela Ballantine, and with entertainment on the evening provided by excellent local band The Handsome Princes, we’re really looking forward to what promises to be a very special night,” adds Chris.
