The 2019 Event Production Awards took place last night (14 March) at Novotel London West in Hammersmith, London.

The sold-out event was a celebration of the festival and outdoor events sector, bringing together both industry legends and newcomers for an evening of glamour.

Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis (pictured centre left, below) and Access editor Tom Hall opened the evening alongside the team behind Serious Stages, who picked up our Industry Legend Award.

Afterwards, attendees sat down for a three course meal and the winners of each of 23 awards were announced in a broad range of categories. The full list of winners can be viewed below, along with all the nominees. Congratulations to all of you!

A full gallery of images from the evening will be up online soon, so for those who were in attendance – keep your eyes peeled. Photos are credited to Jonathan ‘JT’ Taylor – Aniseed Event Photography.
