Pride of Birmingham celebrity judge revealed to be Tony Iommi!
The annual awards, now in their sixth year, celebrate courage, caring, compassion and community, recognising unsung heroes who make a difference.
For Sabbath star Tony, it will be his second year in the judging hot seat. “I’d been to Pride of Birmingham before,” he says. “But until last year as a presenter, not as a judge. It was humbling to read of the amazing achievements and extraordinary efforts of the shortlisted nominees. Helping pick the winners was one of the toughest things I’ve done. I’m looking forward to looking through this year’s nominations. There are some fantastic people doing fantastic things in and around Birmingham.”
The Birmingham Mail’s Pride of Birmingham Awards, with partners TSB, will be hosted at the University of Birmingham in March.
