Host revealed for the Midlands PROPS Awards 2023

Kyran Bracken

Former England rugby captain Kyran Bracken has been revealed as host of the Midlands PROPS Awards 2023.

Born in Dublin, Bracken made his England debut against the All Blacks in 1993 but his international bow ended in a nasty ankle injury as the result of a stamp. The severity of the injury sidelined Bracken for three months but he battled back to full fitness and reclaimed his place in the England team.

Bracken went on to earn a total of 51 caps for his country and appeared at three Rugby World Cups in a ten-year career.

After retiring from the sport in 2006, Bracken went on to embrace the challenge of ‘Dancing on Ice’ and won the competition in 2007.

Bracken now develops property just north of Dublin and has a host of projects across the UK.

In anticipation of the awards, he said: “Variety is a well thought of charity, that does a lot of amazing things. It will be great to see a tangible example of the work they do, as a Variety bus will be on display outside The Grand Hotel. I’m really looking forward to the evening and I have big shoes to fill!

“The Midlands is a fantastic part of the world and I’m hopeful that we’ll raise a lot of money for a great cause”.

The awards will be held on the 27th April 2023 at The Grand Hotel Birmingham, by headline sponsors Bond Wolfe and sponsors, Rainier Developments and Strategic Land, EMMAUS Consulting Limited, Bromwich Hardy, Prosperity Wealth and media partner
