The Midlands Props Awards build on the success of the London Props Awards, which have been running since 1992, and have raised over £10.5 million enabling Variety, the Children’s Charity, to support children and young people throughout the UK. 

We want to say a huge thank you to all who supported the Midlands Props awards and enjoyed a fantastic evening in Birmingham. Please remember that your support makes a real difference to children’s lives today.
