Monday 09 August 2021

Attendees at Logistics UK’s Logistics Awards 2021 will be entertained by one of Britain’s brightest comedy talents, with news that stand-up comedian, podcaster and radio presenter Ed Gamble has been signed to provide the laughs and present the awards at this year’s event. Now in its fifth year, Logistics UK’s prestigious awards ceremony will once again take place at the Park Plaza Hotel, Westminster on 9 December 2021. 

“Having established Logistics UK’s annual awards ceremony as the Blue Riband event in our sector, we are delighted to have secured someone of the calibre of Ed as our entertainment for the evening,” says Kevin Green, Director of Marketing and Communications for Logistics UK.  “After an incredibly hard 18 months for our sector, everyone is looking forward to enjoying themselves and I know Ed’s dry wit and laugh-out-loud humour will put a smile on the faces of everyone who attends.  This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to witness one of Britain’s brightest comic talents up close and I am certain that tickets for the event will sell very quickly as a result.”

Gamble, who is well known as a regular on BBC2’s Mock the Week, as well as the presenter of Radio X’s Sunday morning show and co-creator and co-host of the hugely successful podcast “Off Menu” with James Acaster, has a host of other TV credits, including being crowned as the champion of series nine of Taskmaster.  He has made up stand-up appearances on Live at the Apollo and the Royal Variety Performance.  His appearance at the Logistics Awards 2021 will come in a break between shows on his latest nationwide tour, which runs until the end of April 2022.

Tickets are now on sale for the event, with early bird discounts available on all categories.  To find out more, and book your place at what promises to be another glittering celebration of the logistics sector, please visit:  https://logistics.org.uk/logistics21
