Von Essen prepares to welcome the Acorns

Entries are now being sought for the 2009 Acorn Awards, which take place next June at luxury hotel operator Von Essen's Lower Slaughter Manor and Washbourne Court properties.

The awards, which recognise the top 30 hospitality figures under the age of 30, have spotted the likes of Marco Pierre White, Gary Rhodes and Marcus Wareing, since launching in 1986.

The closing date for entries is 27 February 2009, with judging taking place on 3 April.

So if you fancy being one of the "30 under-30" and joining the ranks of the 670 former Acorns, visit www.caterersearch.com/acorns for information and nomination forms.
