The Audio Production Awards 2016 Gala Night took place at the prestigious BFI Southbank in London on the evening of Wednesday 23rd November with drinks and food from 6pm followed by the ceremony from 7.30pm.  

The evening was hosted by Virgin Radio’s fantastic Edith Bowman, and there was  music and entertainment along the way. 
Guests were welcomed at the Riverfront Café with its spectacular night-time views over the River Thames.  And to accompany this year’s event ‒ generously Lead Sponsored y Audible ‒ a gourmet menu provided in the Riverfront Café to accompany the welcome drink and accompanying music before the main ceremony at 7.30pm.
The ceremony itself will take place in the flagship NFT1 Auditorium at the BFI which offers theatre-style seating meaning that no table reservations will be needed this year. Guests can simply head into the NFT1 space together and sit with friends and colleagues. Make sure you don’t miss what’s set to be an amazing night of delicious food, celebrations, music, comedy and big audio names among the nominees, including Clara Amfo, Cerys Matthews, Dotun Adebayo and Dan O'Connell.. 
And after the main ceremony there was a chance to dance the night away with friends and colleagues.
