Following on from the success of the last awards night at the magnificent Crewe Hall, a grade 1 listed Jacobean mansion in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, we have decided to return there this year.

Not only is it stunning but it's equally accessible from the North or South (eg it's about 90 minutes from London to Crewe by train, and about 3 hours by car from either Kent or Glasgow).

A tree lined drive takes you to the majestic building where you will find stunning marble fireplaces, intricate carvings and stained glass windows and a contemporary wing boasting a high quality spa.

An utterly stunning venue befitting a unique event to celebrate success and friendship - Do not miss out!!! (further details about the venue itself can be found HERE)

On the evening, we will have a fabulous meal with wine in the Continental Suite, after which our Photographer of the Year results will be announced and awards presented to the Top 10 in each genre, as well as to those who win our new Image of the Year awards. After that will be music and a party, which will no doubt carry on into the early hours for some.

The tickets are just £60 (£50 each plus VAT), plus a small third party booking fee of £3.50, a total of £63.50 - and are limited in number, available on a first come first served basis.

Partners and guests are, of course, welcome. Sadly children under the age of 14 will not be admitted.

We are expecting a sell-out event so don't delay in purchasing your tickets!

PLUS - WE ARE DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT ... Everyone attending the Awards night will receive a FREE copy of The Guild's 2018 Yearbook (worth £17.95), kindly supplied by LOXLEY COLOUR!
