The awards, hosted by Nick Conrad of BBC Radio Norfolk, are designed to celebrate the people across the region who give that little bit extra to their communities, or achieve fantastic things without asking for recognition.

Taking place in The Halls in St Andrew’s Plain in Norwich, the glittering ceremony will begin at 7.30pm when David Powles, editor of the EDP starts off proceedings with a short speech following a buffet dinner.

The awards ceremony itself will take place between 7.40pm and 9.30pm, featuring awards such as inspirational person of the year, fire service person of the year, and volunteer of the year.

There will also be an Overall Star award presented to one special nominee. Last year the award was presented to Tracey Eves, a carer from Swaffham.
