Greetings esteemed guests,

Thank you for your continued support and interest in the inaugural Bright Lights Awards Ceremony which is brought to you in partnership with the Royal Air Force.

There has been a fantastic interest in this magnificent event and it will be the perfect opportunity to network and celebrate our achievements amongst our peers, friends, colleagues and families – a unique occasion not to be missed.  This is a pioneering, prestigious initiative which has been quite some years in the planning borne out of a simple vision; to create an occasion which would honour the very best achievements from African-Caribbean grassroots communities which are often fraught with high levels of social and economic marginalisation.

This event is creating one of our most important proceedings of its kind and we’re looking forward to meeting you on the night. 

Many thanks.
