BBC Birmingham used to cover the Variety Club Awards each year for a period in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The awards were often held in the Hilton in London, and televised. They celebrated the best performers in film, television, radio and theatre.

Katie Wright was the executive producer of the show in 2001 and 2002, along with Nick Vaughan-Barrett. Dale Winton was the presenter in 2001, and Ulrike Jonsson in 2002.

Thanks to Ian Collins for making the title grab available.

The following comment was left on the Pebble Mill Facebook page:

Nicola Silk: ‘I directed the inserts in 2002. interviewed a very charming Ant & Dec, a doddery but still funny Eric Sykes, who won the lifetime achievement award, a very young Daniel Radcliffe, there with his mum and an extremely rude and possibly drunk Alan Rickman.’
