After a break of two years due to the pandemic, the Yorkshire Awards return with a gala dinner to honour winners of the 33rd awards on 4th March.
We can now announce who has won these prestigeous awards for 2021.
KEVIN SINFIELD OBE – Man of the Year Award
DAME LINDA POLLARD – Woman of the Year Award

MILLY JOHNSON – Richard Whiteley Award
THE YORKSHIRE REGIMENT – Special Award
SIR MICHAEL PARKINSON – Lifetime Achievement Award
Many nominations were received by the awards committee for Capt. Sir Tom Moore, an honorary member of The Yorkshire Society, who has sadly passed before he could receive this particular accolade though he will, no doubt, receive a special mention at the event.
The presentation of the awards will take place at a gala dinner on 4th March 2022 at Hilton Leeds City. For information please visit the event page.
