The Venue & Invite – The Troxy

The Troxy is a Grade II-listed Art Deco music venue on Commercial Road in Limehouse, London.

We are so excited to be bringing the awards. It will add to the drama and spectacle for all involved. Our award winners will receive our iconic trophies on the largest stage in our five year history. Feeling like true rock stars.

Before we let the London Party Band go to take us on into the after party. They brought the house down in 2018, so much so, we rebooked them the next morning.

The Troxy, was built as a cinema in 1933, it has been converted for modern use and hosts music concerts, immersive cinema events, award ceremonies, conferences, product launches, indoor sport, film screenings, parties and weddings. It is considered a vital part of East London’s history and was made a Grade II listed building in 1990. It has a capacity of 3,100.

Most importantly though, in January 2020 it will host the top workplaces across the UK & Europe.

We will see you there!

Your host – Top Secret

We want to keep that a surprise until the summer is over. We are very excited to reveal ‘their’ identity.

Your Entertainment – London Party Band

“In line with celebrating talent and the great work of engaging our people, international entertainment agency ‘Global Acts’ has organised an extremely exciting series of performances for us. On arrival, guests will be welcomed with the warm, soothing sounds of our New York Jazz Trio. These talented musicians have shared the stage with jazz legends such as Jamie Callum and Jools Holland and have performed for audiences all over the world.

We all like to party, and nobody does it better than the famous LDN party band. This group will be fronted by the enigmatic Jaz Ellington, (star of the Voice, BBC) and the popular ‘Grace Walker’ (star of the west end). The band is made up of Londons finest session musicians who have worked for the likes of Elton John, Craig David, Macy Gray, Sugababes, Kelly Rowland and Spandal Ballet. They are highly energetic and pride themselves on being the most in-demand session band in the UK. If you want to party the night away, you are in good hands.”
