Krzysztof Zemlik owner of Billingtons Oldham has been chosen as a finalist in the 2023 Oldham Business Awards in the ‘ Business Person of The Year’ category.
Krzysztof bought the building which holds so much history for the people of Oldham in 2021 and has been lovingly renovating the century old urban building, in the heart of Oldham Town Centre. Officially opened last Autumn by the Mayor of Oldham, the events space with its magnificent ballroom and coffee/cocktail lounge has already become a focal part of all sectors of the community. Its fame continues to spread, not least this August, when producers from ITV’s The Voice UK 2024 step into Billingtons where they will be keen to listen out for incredible Oldham talent – solo artists, duos, trios and groups of up to eight people.
The Billington’s Dance Studio, also known as the ‘ Ascroft Street Academy ‘ was home to thousands of dancers; from those taking their first faltering steps on the dance floor, to those skilled dancers at competition level, Billington’s nurtured the passion for dance in Oldham for more than eight decades.
Krzysztof Zemlik owner of the building, which holds so much history for the people of Oldham says, “I am absolutely honoured to be chosen as a finalist, I continue to be keen to see my exciting plans for Billingtons Oldham which has been part of the social history of Oldham for so many years , coming to fruition. There are a host of different events and activities taking place at Billingtons from business events to conferences, however there is also opportunities for dancing events too. Dancing will once again be synonymous with Billingtons Oldham.”
As well as being the owner of Billingtons Oldham, Krzysztof is also co-director of Ascroft Medical Centre based in Clegg Street and Ascroft Court, both in the centre of Oldham, established in 2015 as a dental practice for the Polish community of Oldham. The practice has diversified into multiple areas of medical services including general, minor surgery and maternity and is serving a diverse wider community.
The winners will be chosen at a prestigious event on Friday 22nd September 2023.
