The stars were definitely shining in Belfast at the weekend as the cream of Northern Ireland’s hospitality and entertainment industry were honoured.



Former I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here winner Christopher Biggins, Hollyoaks star Gerard McCarthy and the Belfast-born voice of the X-Factor Peter Dickson were just some of the well-known faces who graced the red carpet at this year’s Fate Awards in the Europa Hotel.

The annual event celebrates the wealth of homegrown talent that has helped transform Northern Ireland into a burgeoning cosmopolitan city.

Among those honoured last night was Eamonn Holmes. The television personality, who is currently the face of Sky’s morning programme Sunrise, was presented with the Fate Legend Award.

The broadcaster has spent almost three decades on our screens and is now a household name.

Actor Gerard McCarthy won the Colin Angus Media Personality of the Year while Balloo House chef Danny Millar took away Best Chef.

Belfast restaurant No 27 Talbot Street won the Best Restaurant category, the John Hewitt was named Best Gastro Pub and Rai3n was named Best Club.

Regional winners included The Plough in Hillsborough, Sally’s in Omagh and Grace Neills in Donaghadee.

More than 50,000 votes were cast and the winners were decided by an expert panel of judges including prominent chef Michael Deane who visited shortlisted venues across the province to judge the outstanding achievements of the eventual winners.

Michael Mervyn-Jones, publisher of Fate Magazine, said: “I am extremely proud to be applauding the people who have worked through one of the most difficult trading years of recent times, to contribute to Northern Ireland’s thriving entertainment and hospitality and I am thrilled to see so many of the crème of the industry here, under one roof, recognising and celebrating the successes of the past year.”
