The National Family Business Awards Ceremony, 15 July 2017, Wembley Stadium

The National Family Business Awards Ceremony is a night like no other. Forget watery tomato soup and boring stage presentations, you and your guests are in for a SPECTACULAR night. Nowhere else do Britain & Ireland’s family-owned businesses come together from all four corners of the country for one night to meet fellow family business owners, celebrate their achievements and give special recognition for the incredible contribution they make to our economy. 

Enterprising families just like yours, small and large, all with unique stories to tell of where they started, how far they’ve come and their wonderful achievements. 

 

So what you can expect at the National Awards Ceremony 2017? 

We’re going to Wembley!

Firstly, we know how much time, effort and money it takes for businesses to attend awards ceremonies and that’s why we’ve negotiated a special £99 rate for all Nominees. Not only does this include a champagne reception, exquisite 3-course meal and world-class entertainment, it means you’ll be part of a truly special night at London’s iconic Wembley Stadium. This exclusive nominee rate ends when entries close on 28th April (when it goes up to £125 per ticket) so make sure you speak to your team, find out who’s coming and book tickets asap. Book your tickets at the bottom of this page. 
 

Walk the red carpet

You’re wearing your new frock, dusted off your dickie bow and now it’s time to arrive in style. Family businesses are wonderfully special and you’ll be treated like a VIP as you walk the red carpet to London’s Wembley Stadium and have your photo taken. Think ‘Oscars’ and you can’t go far wrong. 

 

 

The bubbly is on us

Before we kick-start the main event, you’ll be treated to a fabulous champagne reception. The bubbly has been generously donated by Sun Mark, one of Britain’s fastest growing family business. Forget the stresses and strains of the week and relax for the evening ahead with a glass of champagne in your hand. 

 

 

Regional networking

During the champagne reception you’ll have the opportunity to meet your fellow Nominees, particularly those from your region. Get to know others local to you who are all at the helm of their family businesses. You’ll be astounded at how many family firms are in your area and you never know – there could be collaborations and business to be done!

 

 

Sumptuous 3-course dinner

Let’s be honest, it’s the bit we all look forward to. You won’t find any soggy croutons or dodgy chicken here. Just an exquisite 3-course meal beautifully cooked by the team at Delaware North who will be looking after us for the night. What’s more, if you’re vegetarian we promise there won’t be a stuffed mushroom in sight.

 

 

For your entertainment

No awards ceremony would be complete without some good old fashioned foot-tapping entertainment. Over the last 8 years we’ve had the pleasure of welcoming Military Wives Choir, Rock Choir, Julius Cowdrey and Firebird. You’re in store for a real treat this year!

 

 

 

Regional winners announced

Throughout the night we will be visiting each of the 8 regions and announcing the winners of each category. A bit of healthy local rivalry never hurt anyone, right? These winners will then go forward for a chance of being crowned overall National Champion at the end of the night. 

 

 

 

Last but not least…
