The Public Affairs Awards 2017 is a prestigious black tie event which will take place on Thursday 14th December. Once again the awards will be held in the Ballroom of the Park Plaza, Riverbank, and they will be hosted by an eminent political journalist.

This year’s awards follow on from the 2016, 2015 and the 2014 Awards, all three  of which sold out. So please book your tickets – or reserve your tables – early.

The political landscape has changed significantly since Article 50 was triggered and the snap General Election in June.

As always we have several award categories this year and an enhanced judging panel. So if you are serious about public affairs, this is The awards to enter and The event to attend.

Use this website to book your seats at this prestigious event.

Dress Code: Black Tie. 

Drinks Reception: 18:30-19:30, Dinner & Awards Ceremony: 19:30-22:30
