Some of the best, and most respected firms and members of the scaffolding and access community came together to celebrate in Wales on Friday for the NASC Annual Ball & Awards 2021.

The glitzy and colourful annual event that was held this year at the Celtic Manor Resort, Newport, South Wales saw hundreds of industry members converge to celebrate the very best in the scaffolding and access industry.

A champagne reception awaited guests on arrival to this year’s event, followed by a fine-dining three-course meal and live music.

Special guest and surprise host for the event saw TV star and world-renowned comic Jimmy Carr take to the stage.
