Prepare to be inspired by the glitziest, ritziest and glamorous awards & dinner ceremony aimed at celebrating all things Birmingham.

Hitting home the idea that living in the city, everyone can be a winner; the Birmingham Awards will be embracing and rewarding the people who are the beating heart of the city.

The latest giants to jump on board are Grand Central Station and Henry Wong Restaurant. They join a host of other sponsors and supporters, which include Irwin Mitchell Solicitors, Edgbaston Stadium, South & City College, RUS Chartered Accountants, Hollywood Monster, Prepared PR, Ping TV, TAG Network Midlands, GEM Magazine, Elements of song, Jas Sansi Photography, RUS Accountants and JM Security. In addition to these, local fast food chain Big John’s has been confirmed as headline sponsor.

On the occasion, Babar Saddiq, one of the founders of the organisation said, “Big John’s is proud to sponsor the Birmingham Awards. Birmingham must be the envy of cities across the world right now. We are the youngest city in Europe and the most creative. Our reputation as a great place to do business continues to grow and thrive. It’s an honour to be part of an event acknowledging those who are contributing to enhancing the city’s reputation to world-class.”

The city enjoys a well earned reputation for enterprise and creativity throughout its history and the Birmingham Awards will give due recognition to the individuals and organisations that make Birmingham the vibrant place it is.

The awards are designed as a platform for Birmingham to showcase its talents and will give gratitude to the people and organisations that make the city a remarkable place to live, work and play.

There are 17 awards up for grabs including sport, retail, community and education. One lucky individual will also be presented with the ‘Brummie of the Year’ award on the night.

Winners will be announced at the glittery black tie ceremony at the Edgbaston Cricket Stadium on November 27

Anita Chumber, one of the Co-Founder of the awards said, “The Birmingham Awards is the perfect platform to reward those truly remarkable individuals, businesses and organisations that consistently go the extra mile to ensure Birmingham continues to flourish.”

Tickets for the event are available to purchase through the Birmingham Awards website.

As well as recognising the achievements of Birmingham, the Birmingham Awards will be raising money for LoveBrum, a charity which invests in grassroots projects across the city.
