“I can’t tell you how so very grateful we are to everyone who has entered, all our supporters and especially to our fantastic judging panel. Without you none of this would happen and it is incredibly humbling to see this all come together to create these fabulous awards.”

Michael Edwards, Group Business Director at Headline Sponsor Executor Solutions adds

“It only seems like yesterday we were celebrating last year’s winners, so it’s hard to believe the shortlist is already being announced! A huge congratulations from all of us at Executor Solutions on making the shortlist which given the calibre on entrants, is an achievement in itself.”

Tickets for the in-person ceremony are NOW ON SALE; for those wanting to join us at our black-tie event at The Grand in Birmingham you can now purchase your tickets priced at £230 +VAT per person. As space is limited, and in order to ensure we offer as wide an opportunity to attend as possible, we’ve made the difficult decision to limit the number of tickets to 3 per organisation.

For those who are not yet ready to meet in large groups, or who cannot travel on the day, the ceremony will be live streamed via The British Wills and Probate Awards website. CLICK HERE to register to watch the British Wills and Probate Awards 2021.
