The Silver Travel Awards are held on an annual basis, celebrating the best in travel for the mature traveller, with the best companies in the industry getting together hoping to be crowned the number one in their categories.
This presitigous awards ceremony took place at the National Portrait Gallery and the theme for the evening was 'Michael Jackson' thanks to the 'On The Wall' exhibition taking place at the gallery. With interesting pieces on display such as an iconic leather jacket decorated with tiny cutlery, unusual paintings and pictures of the 'King of Pop', along with videos of live performances and people singing his songs.
A highlight was the string quartet in the foyer of the gallery, performing classic Michael Jackson tunes. A fine touch by sponsors Classic FM.
A Michael Jackson impersonator was there for selfies and entertainment during the awards, which were hosted by Classic FM presenter John Suchet, both of whom were showing off their moonwalking skills.
Everyone here at Grand UK Holidays were ecstatic to have been nominated for Best Escorted Tour Operator for the second year running. We were even more pleased to have been runners-up for a second year running, reinforcing the amount of effort our team puts into each and every single tour we run!
Congratulations to all of the winners at this year's awards, we look forward to working hard throughout the following year to ensure we are in the running again next year - maybe we can even win it!

The wonderful Emerald Isle is brimming with natural beauty and although flying might be your first thought, a coach holiday to Ireland is actually the best way to explore.
