Awards Ceremony

The British Data Awards 2023 ceremony took place on Thursday 11th May at The Honourable Artillery Company in Central London.

Incorporated by Royal Charter in 1537 (during the reign of Henry VIII), The Honourable Artillery Company is a spectacular venue that provided a fitting backdrop to celebrate the work of the data community. 

The evening was hosted by the phenomenal Jo Caulfield and was designed to celebrate our Finalists. The ceremony included a drinks reception on the terrace, a three course dinner with wine, comedy, a live band, games, and of course a glittering awards ceremony.
