Challenging Stereotypes. Celebrating Success. Creating Futures

6th National BYA Awards, 26th November, 2016.

The UK's premier national celebration of accomplishments made by black and mixed heritage young people will make its way to The CEME Conference Centre in Rainham, Essex on Saturday, 26th of November, when the Back Youth Achievement Awards (BYA Awards) will highlight excellence within the community once again.

Hosted by Sky 1 and Radio 1Xtra presenter Remel London with headline performer MOBO nominee Nadia Rose, 14 exceptional winners will be recognised on the night.

Children's charity Barnardo's are supporting this year's awards as Headline Sponsor and as sponsor of the 'Resilience' category.

Barnardo's Chief Executive Javed Khan said: "We're really proud to help recognise the successes of black and mixed heritage young people through our support for the BYA Awards. Every day Barnardo's supports a diverse range of children, young people and families, and we continually witness those young people achieving great things despite the many barriers that may be placed in front of them. There are so many inspiring stories out there, and I'd encourage people to attend and hear those stories at the awards ceremony in November".

Established in 2008, the BYA Awards serve as a platform of recognition of young people's personal accomplishments, talents and positive contributions to society.

Founder Kay Oldroyd said: "Whilst we are still faced with the reality of prejudice and racism in our communities as well as ageism, it is crucial that we continue to uplift and motivate our young people to excel in all that they do and publicly celebrate them whilst challenging stereotypes and negativity.

"Young black and mixed heritage people are still more likely to be excluded from mainstream education, face barriers to employment, refused access to opportunities, be disproportionately represented in the criminal justice and mental health systems and have limited positive visual images in mainstream media to look up to.

"However, there is an abundance of unrecognised talent, leadership and excellence that lies throughout the younger generation and we take great pride in being able to highlight and promote that through the BYA Awards as well as creating vibrant, positive role models to impact and influence future generations in the right way."

There are 11 categories open to the under 25s:-

Literary, Performing and Visual Arts; Education; Sports; Business & Enterprise; Community; Resilience (those in care / care leavers); International Champion; Choices and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths). As well as 3 categories open for any age group championing the Mother, Father and Youth Organisation of the Year.
Nominations were taken via website www.bya-awards.com and closed on Friday, 16th of September, 2016.

"In this day and age, we as adults, parents and members of society need to stop complaining about how younger generations are underachieving. We must nurture them and fill them with promises and hope that life is more than just what they see on social media and within this broken society.
The BYA Awards play a pivotal role in making sure the youth are supported and nurtured into becoming active and engaged citizens with an empowered sense of self and strong, balanced mind. I am a living testimony to their great works! - BYA Finalist & Ambassador Kazeem Tunde of UK RnB group Rough Copy.

Tickets for the premier event are now on sale and area available from www.bya-awards.com

If you fancy celebrating your civil partnership or wedding in a World War Two aircraft hangar in the shadow of historic aircraft, then the Royal Air Force Museum in London has some ideas for you. It’s an opportunity for Bridegrooms to remember their childhood airplane models, while Brides can take comfort from the fact that it’s fully heated, and spotlessly clean so their dresses will stay that way too.

The museum is in Grahame Park Way, London NW9 5LL, although satellite navigators will have better luck with NW9 5QW. Follow the A1 parallel to the N1 and turn east along Aerodrome Road. Turn right shortly into Aviation Drive and right into Grahame Parkway. You can’t miss the gigantic building, although the runways have fallen silent and turned into housing.

Your guests can enjoy a glass of wine in the Battle of Britain Hall, where Spitfires and Hurricanes stand proudly. Then you could retire for dinner in the shadow of a historic Lancaster bomber, or find something more contemporary in the Milestones of Flight Hangar. The catering facilities are superb and there is parking for everybody on site.

The Royal Air Force Museum has a sister facility at Cosford, Shifnal, Shropshire that can accommodate up to 800 guests just half an hour away from Birmingham and Wolverhampton - and only 10 minutes from Telford. They have three great wedding spaces for three very different sets of circumstances.

Hangar One is a generous room with fantastic props. You can receive your guests with drinks in the company of the Argosy and Anson aircraft. When you are ready, you can retire to the dinner-dance of your choice beneath the spreading wings of a Comet airliner.

The Visitor Centre has an amazing glass frontage and presents a more modern alternative. This is perfect for a formal reception-dinner in the evening. Perhaps the most amazing place of all to sip chilled cocktails is the National Cold War Exhibition, where you can while away the hours in the company of legendary Vulcan, Victor and Valiant nuclear bombers. What a way to make an impact!

The London Museum is expansive and we were feeling peckish after exploring it. They have two eating places, being the aptly named Echo Alpha Tango Restaurant, and the Wessex Café for lighter snacks. We settled for the former’s aged beef burgers served with cheese and caramelised onions, while junior and his sister got stuck into their mini cheese and tomato pizzas, with garlic bread and fresh salad respectively.
