“Marvellous” actor Toby Jones will be among the stars presenting community awards in Hanley later this month.
Jones, who played Stoke City’s legendary kitman Neil “Nello” Baldwin in the hit TV film, will be at 6 Towns Radio Community Awards on January 29 at The Mitchell Arts Centre.
The awards celebrate and recognise amazing things that happen in Staffordshire and to reward unsung heroes from the area.
This year’s line up includes performances from Wagner (X Factor), Stone-born singer/songwriter Kirsty Bertarelli, Mike Andrew, and Marc Williams.
Jones will present the awards alongside Robbie Williams’ dad Pete Conway, BBC TV’s Eggheads singer Jackie Trent, Port Vale and Stoke City legends and The Wealdstone Raider.
6Towns Radio director Rob Ledgar said: “The night is our ceremony to recognise people who sometimes don’t get the plaudits they truly deserve, helping share the achievements and talents of the people involved to a much bigger audience.
“The ceremony gets bigger every year as our reputation continues to grow and we expect this to be our best yet!”
Middleport-based Fitzjohn Painting Contractors are the main sponsors of the night and with individual awards sponsored by companies across from the Potteries.
Among the awards to be handed out on the night are Best Oatcake Shop, Local Heritage Award, Best Local Charity, Local Hero’ andHall of Fame.
