Attention celeb watchers!! The IN! Magazine Awards in partnership with Randox Health, take place at Belfast City Hall this Saturday evening and they promise to be bigger and better than ever.
Each year IN! Magazine celebrates all that’s great and glamorous about Northern Ireland, from our high achievers to those who add the glitz to the NI social calendar with a star studded bash in the decadence of Belfast City Hall, and this year is no different.
Eamonn Holmes, who is hosting on the night with the ever glamorous Ruth Langsford, is delighted to be involved.
“It’s a great privilege to be hosting this year’s IN! Magazine Awards with Ruth. Northern Ireland is teeming with talent, from Olympians to Hollywood actors, and I can’t wait to celebrate their success with them, in what is guaranteed to be one of the biggest nights of Belfast’s social calendar.”
Some big names up for a variety of awards on the evening such as Woman of the Year, Man of the Year, Couple of the Year and Sports Personality of the Year include; Jamie Dornan, Andrea Begley, James Nesbitt, Liam Neeson, Sean Hegarty and Diona Doherty, Alison Clarke and Carl Frampton.
Some other well known names you can expect to see grace the red carpet include local glamorous girls Christine Bleakley, Leah Totton and Bronagh Waugh, Tiffany Brien and Miss NI’s Meagan Green, along with stylish guys such as Stephen Ferris, Pete Snodden and Rory Best. UTV’s The Magazine and Cool FM’s Breakfast Show will be at the awards to capture all the glitz and glam as it happens.
There is also a new category, Online Personality of the Year, to recognise the sheer importance and impact social media and blogging has had on delivering news and building relationships in recent years. So congratulations to this year’s nominees: Sugahfix, NI Gossip Guy, Strawberry Blonde, Grey is OK!, School Gate Style and Peanut Butter Girl. Looking forward to hearing who wins this one!
Every year the IN! Magazine Awards raise money for a dedicated charity and this year that charity is CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young), a charity mostly run by families who have lost a family member through Sudden Death Syndrome. A very appropriate cause as Randox Health, the UK’s leading health screening service, offering one of the most extensive choices of medical tests anywhere in the world is key line sponsor for the Awards this year.
Old Hollywood Glamour
This year IN! Magazine has embraced the old Hollywood glamour theme of The Great Gatsby, encouraging the guys to don their dickie bows and the gals to take their cues from the movie’s Daisy Buchanan. The best dressed will be well rewarded as American Holidays will be offering a trip to New York for Most Stylish Female on the Evening and the Most Stylish Man on the Evening will win a tailored suit courtesy of The Boardroom.
Lisa Harrison, Publisher of IN! Magazine comments; “It’s hard to believe the IN! Magazine Awards are already in their fifth year. Judging from the thousands of votes we received, it’s clear that there is huge support for local talent and we’re proud to be involved in recognising that.”
