The glittering Awards Ceremony, hosted by the one and only Chris Evans at London’s prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel, will be a fantastic evening with over 1100 guests from across the UK radio industry. 34 awards will be presented over the course of the evening, including the Gold and Special Awards, and we’ll also have two exciting and exclusive live musical performances – watch this space for further details!
Tickets for the Awards Ceremony are now available at £200 (plus VAT) each for Academy members and £260 (plus VAT) for non-members. To request a booking form, please email us now!
See you on the big night!

In this week’s RadioTalk, Free Radio evening presenter and one of our 30 Under 30, Adam Wilbourn, talks to presenters, producers and PDs from across the industry about getting started in radio. Hear how the likes of Pete Allison (BBC Radio 1 and Absolute Radio), Graham Albans (BBC Radio 2), Rob Howard (Capital North East), Toby Mackenzie (Free Radio), Ben Burrell (Free Radio) and Sparky (Free Radio) began their careers and what advice they’d give to someone looking for their first break!
