As one excited finalist put it: “Here at Williams of Audlem, we are all super excited to be attending The Greats Awards 2019. The invites have arrived and how gorgeous are they !?” enthused owner Judy Evans. “We are so looking forward to our big day out in London, where everyone is already a winner.”

Continued Judy: “Since our finalists status was announced it’s been an absolutely fantastic experience over the past few weeks, especially with all the support and well wishes we have received from our customers and our suppliers. Even people in the industry who haven’t already dealt with us have taken the trouble to connect with us directly because of our participation in The Greats Awards. Put simply, it’s been great!”

As London’s glittering Grosvenor House gets ready to welcome guests, many of whom will be taking on board the Walk On The Wild Side theme, here are a few important pointers to remember on the big day itself:

* Make sure you have your cash (or credit card) at the ready for the biggest and best Great raffle yet, with all money raised going to The Light Fund. There are some amazing prizes up for grabs to include travelling in style on Eurostar; a stay at the Hotel du Vin of your choice; tickets to a top West End Show;  tea for two at the Grosvenor House; a shopping spree at John Lewis; a luxury hamper from Fortnum & Mason and a fabulous state-of-the-art BBQ.

* Plus, don’t forget to charge up your phones as there will be loads of photo opportunities and we’d love you to share them with us on social media using the official hashtag #Greats19.
