Sussex Sports Awards 2018

Nominations for the Sussex Sports Awards 2018 are now closed with record-breaking numbers. Thank you for your nominations. We are delighted to announce this year’s finalists, here.

The Sussex Sports Awards is one of the most prestigious evenings in the Sussex sporting calendar, and this year returns to The Grand Hotel in Brighton, on Friday 23 November. This year’s theme is simply Believe: Achieve, as we celebrate those that have dreamt big, and had the passion, determination and belief to achieve those dreams.

Joining regular host, BBC DJ Danny Pike, is a man who embodies this theme. His dream was crazier than most- to become the first British Ski Jumper to compete at the Olympic Games for 60 years. Many doubted him, but he never doubted himself, and in 1988 he achieved his dream at the Winter Olympics in Calgary. Get up close and personal with a legend of British sport, Eddie the Eagle.

We have a limited number of subsidised Community Tickets available for individuals and community groups. These are priced at £55 and include a welcome drinks reception alongside VIP guests, a three-course gala dinner served by The Grand Hotel, wine with your meal and tea/coffee afterwards, entertainment throughout the evening, a special Sussex Sports Awards speech from Eddie the Eagle, the presentation of all of the awards, and an after party to wrap up the sporting year.

Corporate Tickets are also available for £75 plus VAT, and in addition include Prosecco on arrival, priority seating and corporate gifts for guests. Corporate Tables of 10 are discounted to £675 plus VAT, and we are offering a further Early Bird discount to £600 plus VAT when tables are booked in September.

This is not a night to be missed by anybody involved in Sussex sport and physical activity. Sport provides us with a unique opportunity to laugh, applaud, and be inspired, all at once, and the Sussex Sports Awards 2018 will leave guests doing just that.
