2023 Awards Ceremony

This year we are delighted to be hosting our Awards Ceremony virtually. This format was a huge success during the pandemic and means that attendees will be able to join the celebrations regardless of where they are based in the UK.

The event will be completely free to attend and attendees can choose to engage with the event at their convenience. 

We announced our Christmas Category winners at the start of October, and the full list can be found here.
