What do you get when you combine England with a national treasure? That’s right, Sue Perkins at the Visit England Awards! We arranged for her to host this superb ceremony at the Waldorf Hotel in central London earlier this week and what an occasion it was, with a fabulous selection of food, delighted winners and some fantastic jokes. Perfect!
The Waldorf Hotel is an absolutely gorgeous venue for an awards event as evidenced by these stunning photos. Reds and whites combined beautifully to create a warm and elegant atmosphere, which over very well with all of the nominees who had travelled from across the UK to attend these prestigious tourism awards.
Held during the day, it was clear that this approach went over particularly well with attendees. Awards ceremonies are most often held during the evening and if coming from afar, this often means needing to find overnight accommodation. With the event held across an afternoon, lunch and dessert was provided as part of a sit down celebration, which Sue was only too happy to attend, announcing winners in between courses! It was a novel approach from Visit England and one that worked superbly.
One of the shining lights of The Great British Bake Off, Sue Perkins was on sparkling form as presenter of the event! Naturally she has vacated the programme now that it has moved to Channel 4, but we can’t think of anyone better for highlighting the top places in England. From stately homes to the best hotels, all were awarded during the lunch and naturally Sue was only too happy to pose for photos afterwards. A lovely event all round!
Right then, who’s for a cup of tea and a scone?
