The prestigious Arqiva Hall of Fame Lunch, which recognises top radio personalities, is moving out of London for the first time – and coming to Birmingham.
The event, put on by the Radio Academy for the heads of the industry, is moving from the Savoy Hotel, and will be held at the new Resorts World complex .
It’ll be the first time the event has taken place outside of the capital, and will likely see a stream of celebrities attracted to the region.
Trevor Nelson, Nick Ferrari, Annie Nightingale, Margherita Taylor and John Peel are among those previously inducted.
The lunch will take place on December 10 at the VOX Centre , which is part of the new resorts on the NEC complex in Birmingham.
It will take place on the same day as the BBC Music Awards, which are also taking place in the city.
Roger Cutsforth, managing director of the Radio Academy, said: “The Arqiva Hall of Fame Lunch is one of our landmark events. It’s our chance to honour some of the great talent that UK radio enjoys and we are delighted that Arqiva is partnering with us once more.
“Birmingham is the country’s second city and as an organisation that represents and promotes the whole of the UK radio and audio industry, moving one of our flagship events to a city that has such a rich heritage in our sector is very important.”
Details of this year’s inductees and ticket information are yet to be announced.
