Awards events orchestrated by Barker Brooks always tend to be epic affairs. At the Manchester Hilton last month it was the turn of the personal injury teams to take time out for dinner, dancing, entertainment and a pat on the back for another year of hard graft. For them (and for me!) the evening was action packed, from the champagne reception to the presentations. With comedian Justin Moorhouse compèring there was never a dull moment – he was hilarious! Just before the pumpkin hour I headed back up the road to my digs to turn round the awards pictures for morning media and finally fell into bed in the wee small hours. Another sparkling night courtesy of Barker Brooks and great to be part of the team.
