Awards Night

Last year we welcomed more than 700 farmers and industry representatives to a sold out venue, who gathered to celebrate the best in British farming innovation and this year will be no different. Taking place on Thursday, 18 October, the 2018 awards is a night in the agricultural calendar not to be missed.

At this year’s awards evening the winners of the Farmers Guardian Mart’s the Heart Awards will be announced. The awards, which highlight the vital role auctions and auctioneers play within the livestock industry, will be presented with their awards.

2018 Guest Entertainment

Chris is a former British Army Officer with three years operational experience. He left to work for a charity clearing landmines in Asia & Africa. He survived being taken prisoner in Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge (one of the most brutal terror groups in history) and negotiated his release and that of two colleagues from threatened execution.

In 1995 he was blown up in a supposedly safe area of a minefield in remote East Africa losing an arm and a leg. He survived initially because he treated himself. About fourteen hours after injury he arrived in South Africa where doctors said they’d never seen anyone live with such a small amount of blood. Within a year of leaving hospital he ran the London Marathon, raised significant sums to help disabled people in the developing world, worked to ban landmines and successfully completed a full time Masters Degree.

Venue

The 2018 British Farming Awards will be held in the Imperial Suite at The National Conference Centre, Birmingham. The NCC has gained an exceptional reputation across the industry, accommodating over 200,000 guests each year. Situated in the heart of the country, you could not ask for an easier venue to reach by air, road or rail, with ever improving transport links and plenty of exciting attractions in the immediate vicinity the National Conference Centre.

The National Conference Centre welcomed its first guests back in 1985 following the successful launch of the National Motorcycle Museum the previous year. Initially expected to be simply an extension of the National Motorcycle Museum’s facilities, the venue soon developed and matured into a successful stand-alone,award-winning venue of its own.
