For our first face-to-face event since March 2020, we invite you to join us at The Langham for this year’s Excellence Awards: a celebration of both great personal achievements in the sector and the 75th anniversary of MRS.

The event will see the presentation of our highest honour for lifetime service to the profession, the MRS Gold Medal, to Phyllis Macfarlane – only the 17th recipient since it was first awarded 39 years ago.

We will also present 20 MRS Fellowships – to the 14 new Fellows announced this year and the 6 who should have received their certificates in 2020.

The winners of the MRS Silver Medal and Impact 2021 Audience Award will also be announced.

It is expected that by the date of the event current social distancing guidelines will have been relaxed, however we will ensure that the event complies with any guidelines still in place. The Langham has committed to comprehensive hygiene measures throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, as detailed here, but guests should be aware that under current plans they will be sharing mixed tables of ten.

Places at this first post-lockdown in-person MRS event are extremely limited. If you would like to attend please email John Bizzell via
