After careful consideration with all parties involved in the organising of the Educate North Awards 2020, we have taken the decision to postpone this event to Wednesday 30th September . The awards will still be taking place at the Hilton, Deansgate in Manchester and any investment made will be transferred to the new date. It is vital we protect our teams and all guests at this time and we place no further burden on the brilliant NHS and other services. We know you will all understand and support this decision. We are in the process of informing all participants via email of this change. If you have any questions, please get in touch with Becky Mellor via email at becky.mellor@dontpanicprojects.com
