Welcome to the The Caterer's Acorn Awards

Since their inception in 1986, the Acorn Awards, affectionately known as the 30 under 30, have sought to recognise the brightest prospects in the hospitality industry.

Run in association with our headline sponsor CH&Co, and supporting sponsor Arla Pro they recognise the flair and passion of 30 rising stars in hospitality.

Past winners represent every sector of the hospitality industry, and have been nominated by their peers for making an impression in their sector.

This year's event will be held at South Lodge Hotel (part of the Exclusive Collection) on Sunday 18th and Monday 19th July. To view images of previous events, please click here.

We have been working hard to ensure that all the necessary safety measures and precautions are in place for the Acorn Awards, should we need them. We are closely monitoring the situation to ensure the awards ceremony can take place as safely as possible in line with government guidelines. With the UK government’s announcement that events should be able to take place without restrictions from 21 June, we are confident that we will be able to run the event without having to take some of these measures into account, but rest assured we will have a Covid-19 policy in place to ensure our attendees have a both safe and enjoyable evening.
