The best-ever FPA awards night was enjoyed by 460 FPA members and their guests at The Grand Hotel Brighton, with the winners announced by celebrity guest comedian and broadcaster Paul Sinha.

 

FPA Chairman Howard Colliver reported that more entries were received than ever before and each award was highly competitive, reflecting the high standards, commitment to quality and creativity of the sector.  The awards were judged by an impressive panel of independent expert judges who gave their time to ensure objectivity and uphold the credibility of the FPA Awards.

 

During the evening FPA members and guests yet again demonstrated their generosity with their support of the raffle and charity auction, raising more than £10 000 for chosen charities Hospitality Action and Springboard.
