We are delighted to invite you to support the 2nd year of the Variety Catherine Awards; an exciting initiative from Variety, the Children’s Charity.

Variety Catherine Awards


The Variety Catherine Awards is setting a new standard for recognising the myriad contributions from women in business and philanthropy. The Awards showcase and celebrate inspiring women in the UK who have excelled in their respective industries.

Along with the ceremony, guests will enjoy a networking reception, a sumptuous three-course meal, an auction and fantastic entertainment. All this whilst raising much needed funds to support disabled and disadvantaged children and young people throughout the UK who, so desperately need your help.
