Each year the DMAs will culminate in a star-studded awards event. Our next awards night will take place at Allington Castle, Maidstone, Kent, UK on 15th February 2025. This black tie event promises to be a night of fabulous food, amazing entertainment and even better company.

Nestled in the Garden of England, Kent, Allington Castle carries with it a deep and enriching history. From its early beginnings where the location was occupied by a manor house recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, to its stone castle ​which was owned by Sir Henry Wyatt (esteemed advisor to Kings Henry VII and Henry VIII) in the 15th century, Allington Castle has remained a notable fixture of historical significance. After a period of transformation in the early 20th century the castle was restored to its former medieval grandeur and went on to find new guardians in the Carmelite Friars during the mid-20th century. Today, serving as a private residence not usually available to the public, Allington Castle stands as a testament to the resilience and charm of medieval architecture. We hope the awards will allow you a rare insight into this beautiful, historical setting.


Guests will arrive via the private entrance, driving through the majestic entrance gates and along the winding drive that cuts through expansive acres of beautiful castle grounds. As you approach the venue you'll catch sight of the magnificent castle in the distance. You will be directed to the Castle's Great Hall where you will be welcomed with two free reception drinks, music and entertainment. With outstanding views of the castle (making for one of a kind photo opportunities) you'll be able to mingle and meets other guests. Why not have a photo on the thrones!

Guests will then take a short walk to the beautifully decorated Kentish timber-framed barn to enjoy a silver service three course meal and wine. Here you will also find a complimentary goody bag filled with gifts from our event sponsors.

The awards ceremony, hosted by the truly wonderful Rosie Cake Diva will follow dinner and promises to be a night of fun, laughter and celebration. Plus there will be spot prizes and competitions throughout the evening. After the awards, the night will continue with disco and dancing until late.

We have also reserved a whole hotel nearby so if you want to join us for the after-after-party then get in touch to secure your room. Spaces are limited.
