The Charles Gordon Trust Awards has a history of magnifying the importance of community involvement and the stories of those who embody a spirit of excellence. This year’s Golden Lion Awards will be an evening to celebrate the celebrities in the community and those who are doing good work in it.

“The Golden Lion Awards offers more than just a platform to celebrate exceptional achievements. It serves as a reminder of our social responsibility to meet the needs of our communities,” emphasised Charles Gordon, founder of The Charles Gordon Trust. “During the event, we will also pay tribute to the victims of knife crime, inviting their families on stage to acknowledge their tireless efforts in reducing violence and safeguarding our youth.”

Hosted by renowned UK comedian Richard Blackwood, and Kaz Crossley, best known for her appearance on Love Island, the Golden Lion Awards promise an evening of excitement and glamour, bringing together celebrities and illustrious guests from various industries to celebrate communities and the efforts of others in the community. Among the attendees, the Mayor of Croydon, Chief Superintendent Andy Brittain, and MP Claudia Webbe will present awards.

The star-studded show will be televised and headlined by ‘So Solid Crew’, who will take the stage alongside other talented performers including Michelle John, Slim the Comedian, IMD Legion from Britain’s Got Talent, Poetess Jess, Steppaz UK CIC, LMR – Stormzy’s Mirky Christmas Winner, Stush – Performing artist and Songwriter from South London and Omar.

Kelle Bryan, known as a member of girl group Eternal and a part of the Loose Women panel, as well as former WBO Champion Johnny Nelson, have also confirmed their attendance.

The event will be a black-tie affair with a three-course dinner, and memorable music. However, the highlight of the night will undoubtedly be the award show itself with the top 4 nominees in each category along with the winners announced.
