ACR Awards logoUK: The talented comedian Jimmy Carr has been named as the host of the ACR News Awards when they return to the capital in 2015. 

The industry’s longest established awards ceremony, the ACR News Awards 2015 will take place on the evening of Thursday February 26 at The Brewery, the popular venue for the annual FETA lunch.

Commenting on next year’s awards ceremony, event director Jan Thorpe said: “We are very excited about the ACR News Awards taking place in London. The venue is simply stunning and the relocation every other year keeps it fresh. We will of course return to Birmingham – in a new and very impressive location, details of which are currently under wraps – to coincide with The ACR Show 2016. It never fails to attract leading industry figures and win substantial backing in terms of sponsorship.”
