The North West Leicestershire Let's Get Moving Awards, formerly the Sports and Health Awards, are held to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contributions made by local people of all ages to sport, physical activity and health across the district.

The Let's Get Moving Awards is a glamorous evening ceremony attended each year by over 500 local people. However, the pandemic sadly meant that the 2020 ceremony was cancelled and in 2021, the team got creative and moved the event online to a live, virtual ceremony.

2022 saw the return of the 'live' ceremony, where we got to celebrate in person the amazing achievements from across the district.

The evening's proceedings are hosted by the brilliant Ian Stringer and sees finalists from all the award categories come up on stage to receive trophies and certificates in recognition of their fantastic achievements.

On the night an inspiring speech is also given by a local talented athlete, and dazzling entertainment from a local group lights up the stage at the half way interval. Refreshments are available all evening.

When and where are the Let's Get Moving Awards?

This year we will be holding not one but TWO fantastic evenings to celebrate everyone who get's moving in the district.

We will be hosting our Children and Young People's Evening on Thursday 23rd November and our Adult's Evening on Friday 24th November 2023 at Ashby Leisure Centre and Lido.
