This year, TRIC, the Television and Radio Industries Club, celebrates 50 years of the TRIC Awards and next month the Club is hosting a Summer Drinks Evening with the inauguration of its new President, Lorraine Kelly.
On Tuesday, 2 July 2019, the industry is invited to Somerset House in London to raise a glass to the continued work TRIC does and to welcome its new President, Lorraine Kelly, who takes over from Lisa Snowdon after her two years in the role.
TRIC’s continued success and growing reputation for unrivalled corporate entertaining provides a tremendous springboard to industry networking and collaboration.
The Club was formed in 1931 in the early days of broadcasting as the ‘Radio Industries Club’. Its aim today is to promote mutual understanding, goodwill and networking amongst those engaged in the technology and related industries, by holding high-profile events, and in doing so to raise money for the good causes nominated by TRIC.
It is also very well known for hosting the famous TRIC Awards around March time every year in London. This ultra glamourous ceremony brings the industry together to celebrate the UK’s favourite television and radio programmes and personalities.
Winners from this year’s TRIC Awards included Holly Willoughby for TV Personality and BBC Radio 1’s Greg James for Radio Personality. Winning programmes included Strictly Come Dancing, A League Of Their Own and The Great British Bake Off, and incoming President, Lorraine Kelly, was honoured with the TRIC Special Award.
