Greetings esteemed guests,

Thank you for your continued support and interest in the inaugural Bright Lights Awards Ceremony which is brought to you in partnership with the Royal Air Force.

There has been a fantastic interest in this magnificent event and will be the perfect opportunity to network and celebrate our achievements amongst our peers, friends, colleagues and families – a unique occasion not to be missed.  This is a pioneering, prestigious initiative which has been almost two years in the planning borne out of a simple vision; to create an occasion which would honour the very best achievements from African-Caribbean communities which often are fraught with high levels of social and economic marginalisation.

This event is creating one of our most important proceedings of its kind to be staged, however, the health, safety, and well-being of our patrons and team members is our utmost priority and we must do the right thing by the communities in which we live and work to help mitigate the spread of the Covid-19. 

Out of concern for all our valued patrons, we continue to follow Government guidelines and timelines and as soon as it’s possible to do so, a new date will be announced.

Purchased tickets will still be valid for the new date.   

The Team are looking forward to meeting you on the night but in the meantime, please take great care of yourself and your loved ones.

Stay safe and look after each other whenever and wherever possible.

Many thanks.
