Cereals Event 2016


This year's Cereals Event takes place on 15-16 June at Chrishall Grange, near Duxford, Cambridgeshire. Press registration is now open (see below) and this eAlert contains useful information for Guild Members and Friends attending the event.


Bangers 'n' Beer

Members and Friends of the British Guild of Agricultural Journalists are invited to the popular Bangers ‘n’ Beer reception at Cereals.

Please note, the Bangers 'n' Beer event is primarily for BGAJ Members and Friends.

Non-members are welcome and will be asked to provide a donation of £5 per head for the Guild’s Charitable Trust, and will be encouraged to join the Guild as Members.

This year's event – generously sponsored by Bayer CropScience UK – starts at 5.30pm on Wednesday (15 June) in the Media Centre, kindly made available by Haymarket Exhibitions.

Thanks to our generous sponsors, you will be able to enjoy quality sausages and snacks, provided by Bayer CropScience; soft drinks and good beer brewed from Limagrain's British-grown barley and beans; with strawberries and cream generously supplied by Gleadell to finish, while catching up with friends and colleagues.

It will be quicker and easier to leave the car parks once we're done!


Award Presentations

The Bangers ‘n’ Beer reception will include three award presentations:

The Stuart Seaton Regional Newspaper and Journalist Award.

BGAJ / IAgrE Journalism Award for Engineering in Land-Based Industries, sponsored by the Institution of Agricultural Engineers

BGAJ / DuPont Agriculture Arable Photography Award.

All help setting up/clearing will be greatly appreciated – for details, please contact Jamie Day at
