Rewind The Henries 80s Electric Dreams Event 

The Henries 2018 awards event was one to remember by all of the ‘glitterati’ who were there to make history at the 80s Electric Dreams-themed extravaganza.

While the focus was to discover which ranges had won the industry’s top publishing accolades, there was lots of fun to be had and schmoozing to be done, until the early hours.

PG Buzz shares a flavour of The Henries 2018…
