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 ceremony at the Winding Wheel on Wednesday, June 13 when they will announce the winners of 15 categories in the annual awards organised by Destination Chesterfield.

Only 50 tickets remain for the popular event, 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 seven hoping to defend their titles.

At the ceremony, the coveted overall Retailer of the Year title, 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.”

For Ricky, it will be the second time he has hosted the awards. He said: “I am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces, along with some new businesses, getting recognition for their hard work. It’s a celebration of all the retailers in Chesterfield.”
