Following the ceremony, Strictly Come Dancing’s talented and mesmerising Anton Du Beke & Erin Boag took to the illuminated enormous 8m x 8m dancefloor. The ballroom dancing professionals immediately wowed the guests as Anton dramatically entered the room singing whilst emerging down the balcony staircase, the guests were treated with multiple costume changes, jokes/humour and audience participation and varied dance routines from Strictly and their forthcoming tour ‘Dance Those Magical Movies’ that will see them dancing their way through 2020 on their tour, which will be taking place in the UK and Ireland.

Immediately afterwards Killer Queen (Europe’s biggest tribute to Queen and the event’s headline entertainment) took to the stage to get the guests in a frenzy. To end the awards, the dancing shoes were on! Killer Queen absolutely blew the roof off The Queens Hotel! After an iconic performance the resident DJ played to guests until the small hours.

The awards cover all aspects of the business and recognise colleagues from every corner of the Group, from sales executives, drivers and accountants to technicians. The winners were chosen from more than 5,000 colleagues for their outstanding work throughout the year and of demonstrating the five keys of success; character, attitude, drive, energy and talent.

Robert Forrester, Chief Executive of Vertu Motors said: “As a Group we are passionate about recognising and rewarding hard work and talent, and these awards are a chance to do just that.

“Vertu Motors has enjoyed another great year, so it is only right that we honour colleagues that have made this success possible with a fantastic night of celebrations.

“This year we have some new faces at the awards, which showcases some of the new talent we have in our team as well as many long-serving colleagues.

“Every colleague nominated has performed to an exceptional level and as we continue to grow, it gets harder to win an award. Every winner deserves recognition, but so do the teams supporting them across the business.”
