Monorex and edding UK were shortlisted for 3 of the 8 awards this year, which is an unheard of achievement - we walked away on the night with one of those 3 awards "The Lloyds Innovation" prize... Congratulations to everyone who has helped make Secret Wars what it is today, from the artists battling to my guys back stage who make sure lights are on and walls are fresh white!
A special thanks to Andy from edding for making this all happen, as he was the man who filled in that crazy 32 page doc to apply at the start ;) well done sir!

Mr Arts and Business, Terry from Monorex/Secret Wars and Andy from edding
The award was hand carved in Afghanistan (Kabul) by a charity foundation called the Turquoise mountain.
A few eyebrows were raised when we won the award, as we were the underdog on the night - going up against people like BP and the Royal Opera House...
After losing the first two awards silently (in pain), a lot of passion was shown when Kate Mosse read out our name as winners for the final award - we all jumped up with huge screams of YES, C,mon...etc and started cuddling each other (man passion :).
To eat cost £200 each but as you can from the starters, it was well worth it!
Gabriella from Redbull added some much needed beauty to a table of lads..
Afterwards Classic FM and The Guardian interviewed us and we were congratulated by many random people, a great night and I hope we can apply again with the School Wars concept.
Watch out as we are going for all 8 next year!
