Following a fantastic night of celebration in January this year, the splendour of the Lancaster London will again provide the backdrop for the sport’s annual awards ceremony on Sunday 24th January 2016. The stars of 2015 will be recognised in every race division and in human award categories including Owner of the year, Trainer of the year, Kennelhand of the year, George Ford Award for Services to Retired Greyhounds and the GWA Harry Lloyd Trophy for Services to Greyhound Racing as well as a presentation to the 4th BAGS Track Championship winners, last year presented to a rapturous Peterborough.


Tickets are priced at £85 per person for the glittering black tie event (tables to seat groups of 10) and include a drinks reception, three course dinner, wine and dancing until late. Rooms are available at the hotel at a discounted rate and can be booked via this link;


Barry Faulkner, GBGB chief executive said:


The GBGB Greyhound of the Year awards night is always a stellar occasion. As we move towards the end of the year, the sense of excitement grows as owners anticipate the inclusion of their pride and joy in the nominations for awards.


“Last year our awards were generously sponsored by BAGS, Betfred, Coral, Ladbrokes, Pinpoint Recruitment, Press Association Sport, Racing Post, SIS and William Hill.


Again sponsorship opportunities for the various awards at this year’s event are available and they offer a great opportunity for companies to showcase their brand and join us on an evening of celebration of our great sport.”
