Held at Battersea Park Arena, the Accountancy Age Awards 2004 played host to more than 1000 industry VIPs.

Hosted by comedian Rory Bremner, the night was the biggest and best awards show in Accountancy Age’s 35-year history.

Bremner’s rapid-fire jokes and many ad-libs made the handing out of some 20 awards highly entertaining.

004Say no more…

005The Awards house band played a variety of standards with virtuosity, taste and great subtlety.

006Indeed, the drummer was so experienced, he could play the songs in his sleep.

007As could the bass player, it seems.

008Accountancy Age editor Damian Wild, who opened the evening, was of course, right on the money.

009Personality of the Year award-winner Sir David Tweedie was delighted to receive his award and made a rousing speech to mark the occasion.

010Many diners didn’t realise the table display by one of the awards’ sponsors was made of ice until it began to melt as the evening wore on.

011Unlike Accountancy Age reporter, Brian Moher (right), who retained his 007-like coolness throughout the evening, naturally.

012Indeed, everyone who attended the night was impeccably dressed (with black proving once again to be the ‘new black’) and well-behaved.

013Well, there were a few colourful characters.

014It certainly wasn’t long before the dance floor was the place to be.

015And everyone knows what great dancers accountants are…

016So all that remains to be said is: ‘play it again Sam’ for next year.
