Wonders of Westside

Night to remember for Birmingham’s big award winners

The name says it all. If you’re lucky enough to pick up a WOW award you really are the toast of Westside! The WOWs – or to give them their full title, the Wonders of Westside – recognise the achievements of those working in Birmingham’s premier mixed-use business area. That covers 15,000 people employed in more than 300 businesses, including offices, hotels, pubs, clubs, restaurants and leisure venues.

Now in their twelfth year, award winners included Hyatt Regency Birmingham, Pickled Piglet and Brasshouse. There was a special bravery presentation to Martin Huchins, a security supervisor at Brindleyplace. A fantastic evening also saw an amazing £45,000 raised for the Royal British Legion.
