Drapers' Hall - A stunning location
Located on the site where Thomas Cromwell built his palace in the 1530s, the richly decorated Drapers’ Hall is steeped with history and recognisable from films and TV programmes such as The King’s Speech, The Apprentice and The Great British Menu.
The venue’s opulent Livery Hall will provide the perfect setting to announce this year’s BWF Awards winners. There are six categories of award, highlighting technical innovation and excellence in joinery projects and product design, process efficiency and health & safety, as well as special awards for apprentice and trainee performance.
Yet again all those shortlisted for the BWF Woodworking Awards receive a free ticket to the event, ensuring the awards are truly open to all. We'll be revealing the shortlist in advance of the Awards Ceremony!
