The 12th National What's On 4 Kids Awards 2018 with headline sponsor Morton Michel will be held on the afternoon of October 3, hosted by NatWest in the heart of the City of London at their prestigious 280 Bishopsgate location.

With exciting NEW categories & an array of special guests we are looking forward to another highly successful & inspiring event!

A massive 70,000 votes were recorded this year!

Each finalist deserves to be congratulated on getting this far in the UK's leading and longest established awards for the sector. 2018 was an exceptional year with voting very fierce across all the categories right up to the end so thank you to everyone for being part of the action! 

Each finalist will be invited to attend the awards on October 3 with our special event VIP guests Dick and Dom!  All finalists will be contacted direct by email by July 25 so if you have not received your email confirmation please contact Mel@whatson4.co.uk. Finalists should register to attend by August 13 at 5pm and will have the opportunity to bring a guest, space permitting. We expect a sell-out event once again.
