The venue

The Sheridan Suite in Manchester is “one of the largest and most dynamic event spaces in the North West.”

With the 2019 Housing for Older People Awards being larger than ever before, we have selected a venue that we feel matches our ambitions. The event for the winners of the national awards is always attended by hundreds of retirement housing residents, managers and developers, as well as famous faces and fantastic entertainment.

You can read more about the Sheridan Suite on their website.

The event

The format of the Awards celebration will be similar to that of previous years, including its successful mix of speakers, entertainers and lively presentations. We are planning for 350 to 400 guests

Once voting has closed, we will invite national winners to book tables for our celebratory event at the Sheridan Suite in Manchester. Please return to this website in February 2019 for more information about booking.
