City & Guilds 2011 awards

On Thursday night I was lucky enough to attend my sixth City & Guilds Lion Awards dinners courtesy of my very talented colleague, friend and former student Susan Carter who had been awarded her second Gold Medal of Excellence. The evening was held at the Roundhouse in Camden which was really interesting as finally I got to go inside after hearing for so many years of gigs being at the Roundhouse. A fantastic venue and as ever the organisers of City & Guilds really do celebrate the success of their courses and learners. George Lamb was the compere for the evening and all the medalists got to walk down a set of very steep red carpeted stairs, I think a few of the ladies regretted their choice of footwear.
 Sue was presented one of the key Livery Prizes, the Haberdashers Prize for her excellent workmanship so i think she may be investing in some new blocks soon. Then off to the tube at home time.
