The 2016 National Calendar Awards ceremony took place on Wednesday, 27 January. There were some stunning calendars full of wonderful photography and vibrant designs ranging from desk calendars to pocket diaries.

David Higgins opened the event and spoke about the importance of calendars today. Eamonn Holmes, TV presenter for ‘This Morning’, was the guest speaker, giving a very charming, funny speech and had the whole crowd laughing! The Master was very proud to be speaking at the event and was impressed with the collection of entries. She said they “demonstrated an innovative approach to calendar design”.
