Recognising and rewarding the most loved children's activities in the UK since 2006!


The What's On 4 Kids Awards Ceremony hosted by NatWest
is in Central London on Friday 11th October 2019

It is with sincere thanks to NatWest that once again we can bring together our finalists, sponsors and very special guests for the awards ceremony in central London at their brand new event space in the heart of the City. 

The ceremony is a huge celebration for children activities professionals, their teams and the sector as a whole plus an opportunity to network with like-minded people - you never know who you might meet!

We are also delighted to welcome back Jonathan Bremner to the What's On 4 Kids Awards ceremony - and this time as your ceremony host!

The business huddle 2019 event is also on the same day and at the same fabulous NatWest venue so finalists can maximise their day in London.  Find out more about the business huddle here.


Meet your ceremony host, Jonathan Bremner

Actor, singer, presenter, compere, musician and songwriter

Jonathan has flown all over the globe, performed for the Royal family and supported legends like Diana Ross and Whitney Houston.  He also rocked the lead role of Norman in the smash hit West End musical Dream Boats and Petticoats.

Most recently Jonathan was in Budapest to film in the role of Tarzan in an Italian biscuit commercial and has previously acted for M&S in the UK and Champions League in Italy.

As an in-demand host, Jonathan is booked throughout the year in London and Dubai at many prestigious events.

Jonathan has worked alongside Caudwell Children for over 10 years.  Hosting and presenting at the famous Butterfly Ball where he introduced the Bee Gees and Simply Red!

With a Hollywood movie project in the pipeline, it’s certainly never a dull moment for Jonathan!


What a fabulous event we had in 2018!
