What a brilliant, fun and prestigious night!
Saturday the 7th October saw the third Birmingham Awards take place at the Edgbaston Stadium.
With over 450 people in attendance we brought together the very best individuals and organisations our glorious city has to offer for a night of honour, recognition and celebrating being proud and being brum. #BProud #BBrum
The Birmingham Awards was once again headline sponsored by Birmingham City University, alongside category sponsors Pathway Group, Riverdale Insurance & South & City College Birmingham.
Host Raaj Shamji, known for his flamboyance and infectious humour, and his eclectic band kept the guests entertained with their unique brand of wit, wonder and flair. They brought a sense of cabaret, zest and fun to the night that kept everything up and lively.[slideshow_deploy id=’14975′]
Live music was provided by the Walsall Wallaz and Beat Asylum, guests were also treated to a stunning performance from CircusMash.
Drinks were in full flow courtesy of our drinks sponsor NA Consulting and food was provided by Simply Mahirs. The delectable cuisine was perfectly fitting for a night celebrating the very best Birmingham has to offer.
Needless to say, when it came to the winners, the level of excitement and tension was palpable. Some of the most coveted awards and winners of the night included Brummie of the year which went to James Wong and Lifetime Achievement Award which was awarded to Tom Ross. The crowd moved to the after party after the awards was over, which saw yet more fun, laughs and partying.
Finally a big thanks to all our sponsors and supporters including Headz Up Business, Tag Network Midlands,Vibrant Networks, Hollywood Monster, Hotel Du Vin, Visit Birmingham, Dluxe Magazine, Jas Sansi & Social Frames.
Next year’s Birmingham awards is already being planned and looks set to be even bigger, better and brighter – #BProud #BBrum
