Larry Lamb, star of TV shows Gavin & Stacey and Eastenders, will host this year’s UK Jewellery Awards (UKJA), taking place on Wednesday 3 July at the HAC in the City of London.
Lamb, who is a popular stage and screen actor with a career spanning over 30 years, takes over from previous UKJA host, Gethin Jones, who has presented the awards for the last three years.
The UKJA is the jewellery and watch industry’s longest-running and most prestigious awards event and attracts around 700 guests each year to celebrate the achievements of colleagues in the trade.
Major multiple and independent retailers as well as some of the UK’s biggest brands and suppliers have already secured their seats for the not-to-be-missed event and so others considering attending are advised to book early to ensure a good position in the room.
Some of the names confirmed to be there on July 3 include the likes of Beaverbrooks, Lumbers, Jacobs the Jewellers, WB The Creative Jewellery Group, ChloBo, Sif Jakobs Jewellery, Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery and Cooksongold, among many others.
In what was a record year for entries with over 400 received, the final shortlist for the UKJA sees 120 businesses and individuals spanning 20 categories incorporating everything from retail and design through to manufacturing and marketing.
