In the Autumn of 2022 there will be an memorable celebration for the Winners and High Commendation recipients of the Retirement Living Awards, subject only to any Covid-19 restrictions remaining in place.

There is potential either to host an Awards reception and ceremony during the Care Show at the NEC, Birmingham, or to host a separate lunch and ceremony later in October or November away from the bustle of a major trade show.

A decision on the type of event will be made once the entries are in.

If the event is held in the Retirement Living theatre at the Care Show it will take the form of reception drinks and canapés, followed by the Awards ceremony.

If a separate event proves more appropriate because of numbers a suitable venue for an Awards lunch and ceremony will be chosen for its ease of access from all over the UK. 

If a separate event is planned the Reception will begin at 12.00 noon and lunch will be served from 1.00 pm.

The full menu will be published on this page together with any vegetarian alternatives as soon as they are agreed. Wines will be served with lunch, as will mineral waters.

Everyone attending will be asked if they have any special dietary requirements in advance of the event so that Chef can cater for all.

The Awards will be presented after lunch during a ceremony hosted by a professional presenter that is expected to last no more than 45-60 minutes, finishing no later than 3.30 pm.


Both category Winners and High Commendations will go on stage to receive their awards. Photographs of each recipient will be taken and made available online on the morning following the Awards, if not sooner.

Please use the ATTEND THE AWARDS button in the right hand column to reserve your places at the Retirement Living Awards 2021. This button will visible and active once the decision on the type of event has been taken.
