VOTING is now open for the 14th annual Ulster Tatler Awards after the province’s favourite lifestyle magazine confirmed the event’s return following a year’s absence due to Covid-19.


The welcome return of the Ulster Tatler Awards 2021 will see popular television and radio personality Pamela Ballantine host the prestigious ceremony which recognises people and businesses that have excelled in the last year.


With 16 award categories in total, celebrating the best that Northern Ireland has to offer in hospitality, beauty and business, people are asked for their favourites by midnight on Monday August 16.
