a4uAwards Record Haul for eConversions & VoucherCodes.co.uk

The Grosvenor House Hotel played host to the annual a4uAwards last night, with VoucherCodes.co.uk walking away with a record four awards as they became the most successful company in a4uAwards history.

After an opening speech from a4uAwards founder Matthew Wood, this year's presenter Kevin Bridges took to the stage and got the laughter flowing with his set. Throughout the evening Kevin continued to supply some hilarious gags, and the take on his younger days with his TV was certainly something many in attendance found hilarious.
