The eventual winners of the 2016 National Pig Awards will be exceptional individuals as the competition is looking very strong!
There have been in excess of 50 entries across the board, and the first phase of judging began on Wednesday, August 3. The finalists, all of whom receive two free tickets to the gala dinner on Wednesday, November 9 at the London Lancaster Hotel, will be announced in our September issue, and the winners revealed on the night.
The chairman of judges, Stewart Houston, was very impressed with the standard of the entries received last year, and is expecting more of the same this year.
“Judging was incredibly challenging last year as the standard was so high,” he said. “I’ve seen the list of names who’ve entered this time, and I’m expecting this year’s judging to be equally challenging.”
If last year is anything to go by, the evening itself is going to be a great night. Last year’s gala dinner was attended by 380, with the event set to grow again this year. In order to allow for growth, the organisers have moved the event to a new venue – The London Lancaster.
The evening will be compered by a celebrity host, with celebrity entertainment too.
Tickets and tables for the evening are now available and interested parties should contact Simon Lewis (firstname.lastname@example.org). Tickets are priced at £165, or tables of 10 at £1,500.
