The Crime Writers’ Association

The Awards Dinner

The CWA Daggers Gala Dinner was held on Wednesday 29 June at the Leonardo Royal London City Hotel on Cooper’s Row in London.

It was the first time in three years that we have been able to host a live event, and everyone – readers, writers, editors, agents, publishers, bloggers, journalists and guests – had a wonderful time as we celebrated with the nominees and winners of this year’s Daggers.
