Photos: Highlights of 2016 Farmers Weekly Awards night

It was a night when the country came to town and the farming industry celebrated its stars. 

The 45 finalists and more than 1,000 other people converged on London’s Grosvenor House Hotel to recognise the achievements of the winners, to meet old friends, to network and do some serious partying.
