Family Favourites Awards
Meet the Judges
Our regional awards are voted for by real families, based on their own experiences, so you can trust that they all come with the seal of approval that really matters. But when it comes to crowning our national champions, we've enlisted help from some of the best in the bunch. Introducing our Family Favourites Awards panel of judges for 2018...
With over a decade of experience working in the travel sector, Simon’s career has been a non-stop exercise in gaining experience in experiences. He ran the marketing for a clubbing holidays tour op, helped launch a ski festival and ran the UK’s largest Florida theme park ticket site. Now a family man, he’s swapped theme park rides for coffee shops and soft play centres as he embarks on a whole new type of experience – leading the team behind the biggest website for family days out in the UK since early 2018 (that's us!).
As a Day Out With The Kids Trusted Explorer, Susie's ever-growing popularity comes from her 'honest mum' approach and candid content, earning her over 100,000 Instagram followers along the way. A champion for small brands and local gems, Susie's parenting, lifestyle and fashion blog, My Milo and Me, follows family life with her partner and two sons, featuring plenty of adventures both in the UK and abroad.
