Singer and DJ Boy George is to host the 18th London Club and Bar Awards next month.

With London playing host to a number of high profile events this summer ranging from the Queen’s Jubilee to the Olympics and  Wimbledon, The London Club and Bar Awards have announced they will be celebrating all that is great in London …after dark.

“London continues to deliver the most exciting and original entertainment in the world, and this year is our chance to put that on a podium. In this year’s awards ceremony, another 12 months of exceptional creative achievements are to be celebrated on Tuesday 12th June 2012 at The Intercontinental Hotel, Park Lane.” LCBA organisers say.

With the influx of millions of tourists, athletes and supporters to London this summer, The London Club and Bar Awards founder and owner Mark Armstrong has become the un-official night time ambassador to all that London has to offer, after dark.

Mark has expertly guided The London Club and Bar Awards, which he started 18 years ago, to where it is now and established it as the first, largest and most important nightlife industry ceremony in the world.

Club and Bar owners, promoters, DJs, event organisers, venue managers, showbiz impresarios, night time Svengalis, dandy gentry…together with their glamorous entourage, glittering luminaries et al, are expected to congregate for a tantalising cocktail reception overlooking Hyde Park. The Ceremony and Awards Show follows with dinner in The Grand Ballroom. Interaction between clips and live coverage will depict the Current State of Play in Nightlife. The evening then culminates with the definitive after-party.

“The Categories at The London Club and Bar Awards 2012 will reflect all aspects of the Capital’s social sway; from Shoreditch to Chelsea, with The West End forever and ever. From Best Club and Best Bar, other categories such as Best Restaurant Bar & Best Club Promotions, to Best Night and Best DJ, with all the other accolades in between, plus of course The Outstanding Achievement gong!” LCBA organisers add.

The entries and winners from the categories are based on decisions made by club goers and a committee panel involving media partners and key social connoisseurs. Boy George hit the music scene with a multi-coloured thud in the early 1980s with his band Culture Club, appearing on shows such as Channel 4’s The Tube (pictured) and BBC One’s Top of the Pops to much chatter – a lot of people couldn’t tell whether George was a man or a woman.
