This year the Good Funeral Awards Ceremony will again be at the Porchester Hall in Bayswater, London.

We chose to host the awards in London because of their growing status.

We also chose it because there is room to seat a couple of hundred guests and accommodate a small exhibition in the style of the Ideal Death Show.

We intend to showcase the excellence of the British funeral industry.

We also figure everybody can get to London in whatever style they like and get home again easily. A weekend away has proven expensive for many of our nominees in the past.

There will be many opportunities for sponsorship and promotion. If you would like to sponsor an award or advertise your product or service in our programme or goody bags, please get in touch.

And like the Oscars in Hollywood, there will be several organisations wishing to host exclusive after parties in neighbouring venues.

The Porchester Hall is grand and spacious and a fitting venue for our deserving winners.
