The second annual Prolific North Awards has sold out, with 730 tickets sold for the event this Thursday.

With more than 140 individual companies and organisations from across the North of England represented, it will be, by some margin, the biggest single gathering of senior creatives and ‘meeja’ folk in the region this year.

The event takes place at The Point at Lancashire County Cricket Club on May 1st and will be co-hosted by journalist and presenter, Jim Hancock, and BBC North West Tonight reporter and presenter, Beccy Meehan.

For those attending, the drinks reception starts at 18.30, followed by a welcome speech and dinner. The awards ceremony will  be followed by a DJ set by the legendary Clint Boon.
