Given the current uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and the possibility of local lockdowns occurring along with the continued ban on mass gatherings, the SEA National Committee took the decision to reschedule the SEA Awards and Gala Dinner to Friday 19th March 2021.

This is the first time in the history of the Awards that we have had to reschedule the event, but given the circumstances, it is definitely the correct decision.

The event will still be held at the Park Regis Hotel in Birmingham The hotel has worked closely with us to try and provide the best outcome for both parties and we are looking forward to a fantastic Awards event and hope that all members/interested will be able to attend and, of course, enter for the Awards.

The new deadline for submissions is Friday 18th December 2020 at 3pm and full details will appear in the next SEA newsletter.
