The countdown has begun to the UK’s most prestigious gala event as the UK’s favourite cuisine will once again be honoured at the eighth annual British Curry Awards taking place on 26th November 2012, at Battersea Evolution in London. Coined the ‘Curry Oscars’ by the Prime Minister David Cameron, this year’s event will once again see a plethora of high-profile guests in attendance, and will include celebrities, dignitaries, politicians, business leaders, and of course, top names from the culinary industry in the UK. The gala dinner will also feature quality entertainment amidst a gourmet banquet. This year’s event will also celebrate a Best of British theme as it reflects on the UK’s remarkable achievements during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

With the UK curry industry boasting 10,000 restaurants and 80,000 employees, the awards have become a highlight on the UK social calendar, and each year showcases the vast allure of the £3.6bn a year curry industry. The curry industry is not only a lucrative mainstay of the economy but also an integral part of the nation’s social and culinary fabric.
