Big name line-up for Renewables Awards


This September the Renewables Awards returns and is set to be even bigger than before.

On Thursday, 13 September the Renewables Awards returns to the Ricoh Arena to reveal the winners across a series of sixteen extremely competitive categories. "The quality and quantity of entrants for this year's awards surpassed expectations yet again and we want to ensure the evening's entertainment does the same," said event organiser, Dan Caesar.


While the host for the evening, Gabby Logan, was announced earlier this year, the entertainment for the evening remains a closely guarded secret. "It has been a challenge to find an individual to follow in the footsteps of Michael McIntyre, so guests to this year's Renewables Awards can look forward to two comedians for the price of one. We have also booked a fantastic live band and the great thing about the Ricoh Arena is, once the disco is over, the casino carries on through the night."
