    Food and Drink Awards 2023

    The Royal Exchange is delighted to host the annual Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards on 11th May. Vote for your favourite personalities now!

    The event will champion the UK’s many wonderful personalities from the sector. Across 13 categories, an independent panel of experts will judge and award the impressive work currently being done there. 

    But there are two categories which you get to decide: Personality of the Year and Digital Creator of the Year are decided by a public vote. Fortnum & Mason have announced the shortlists of these, which each feature nine entertainers and creators that have whetted the nation’s appetites on TV and online. 

    And that’s not all! By voting, you will be entered into a competition to win one of two Fortnum & Mason Hampers worth £150 each. A delicious prospect! 

    So what are you waiting for? Vote at the awards website here. Voting ends 31st March 2023.
