UK Esports Awards - Year 2

We are pleased to announce that after the huge success of year 1, the UK Esports Awards will be returning later this year with a number of changes.


Firstly we are very excited to reveal that we are moving to a new venue this year. The ESL UK studio in Leicester was a great venue last year, but with the growth of the show we have had to look for a new venue. The live show will be broadcast in front of a live audience at Rich Mix in Shoreditch, London. This seven-storey building has a number of function rooms for events of all shapes and sizes. We will be taking over 2 rooms on the night of Saturday August 3rd to host the awards show, and the other for after party and networking event.

The Stage - This is the room where table-seated pre-show drinks and the live show will take place.

The live awards show is invite only so we can maximise the number of finalists attending on the night, but tickets will be going on sale for the after party and networking event which will take place straight after the show in another function room at Rich Mix.


Doors for the event will open at 6pm for pre-show drinks and snacks, with the show scheduled to start at 7:30pm. The show is scheduled to run until 10pm, when doors will open to the after party and networking event.

The Mix - This event space will house the after party and networking event taking place straight after the show.
