I went to the Concorde Centre in Manchester and Old Trafford football ground. I found these both to be of good places to hold the service user awards however for my final decision I went with Old Trafford. I found this to be of a more comfortable venue of the two for the awards to be held as it was a warm and quite welcoming by staff too.
The Concorde Centre was also a nice venue however it was very noisy and quite cold so I opted for Old Trafford instead. I feel this is going to be a suitable venue to host the 2017 awards and I hope people will enjoy the awards at the chosen venue.
