If you know a local sports star, top team or successful school that deserves recognition for their on or off-field efforts, nominate them now to give them the chance of lifting a trophy at Ewood Park at the end of the season!
For over 50 years, the Blackburn with Darwen Sports Council Awards have recognised the best of grassroots sport within the borough.
And, for the second year in a row, Northcote at the Rovers have kindly donated use of the Legends Lounge to Blackburn Rovers Community Trust to host the event, which is put on by a team of volunteers from local grassroots sport.
As a result, the date for this year's night of celebration is set for Friday 18th May with a 7.30pm start.
The venue is on the third floor of the Darwen End stand, with ample parking in the adjacent car parks and access via stairs or lift to the lounge when doors open at 7pm.
A cash bar will be available on the night, serving both alcoholic and soft drinks.
