Together again: celebrating the education community at the Bett Awards 2021

After three postponements, several changes of venue and all manner of additional safety measures, Bett was thrilled to bring the education community together at the Hurlingham Club on Thursday 22 July. The community met to celebrate the significant achievements of the education community at the annual Bett Awards. The beautiful sunshine certainly enhanced the occasion as over 300 educators and tech companies were entertained by a band, delicious food and the comedy of Stephen K. Amos.


A wonderful afternoon at a stunning venue celebrating everyone’s hard work and contribution in the Education sector with an epic crowd. Couldn’t be any better! – Bob Usher – LGfL Content Manager
