We are delighted to announce this year’s sponsor of

Small Business Award

Knowsley Safari

Knowsley Safari was opened in 1971 and remains one of the region’s most well-loved and popular visitor destinations, consistently attracting over half a million visitors a year.

There is a long history of keeping animals on the Knowsley estate; in the 19th century, the 13th Earl of Derby, a renowned natural scientist, created his own menagerie.

Today, Knowsley Safari is jam packed with things to do both in and out of the car.

Over 700 animals, and 80 species can be spotted in the Safari’s extensive animals habitats, including rhinos, tigers, lions and baboons. Events and demonstrations throughout the year are designed to appeal to all ages.

“We are delighted to be sponsoring the Small Business of the Year 2022 Award. Knowsley is a thriving hub for a wide array of industries, and the tenacity of small local businesses are helping to put Knowsley on a national and international map, whilst ensuring that we continue to protect Knowsley’s strong identity and sense of community. We are looking forward to celebrating the success of local small businesses at this year’s awards.”
