"Since their inception in 2001, the Walpole British Luxury Awards has celebrated the supercharged combination of culture, creativity and commerce that is a signature of British luxury’s global appeal. Fast forward to this evening’s awards and it’s clear that the defining mix of arts and business is still the bedrock of luxury’s success," said Helen Brocklebank, Walpole's Chief Executive. "In a country renowned for its storytelling, every Walpole award has a tale to tell of individual triumphs, of Britain’s extraordinarily rich and diverse history and of the talent, ingenuity, creativity and innovation of its people."

"My congratulations to tonight’s winners and thanks to all our sponsors and partners without whom this evening would not have been possible."
