The Groucho Maverick Award 2016

It's that time again, when Groucho Club members get the chance to nominate someone deserving of the most hallowed and revered prize in all of Soho, the Groucho Golden Egg for original, unorthodox individuals (or organisations) who through their works or deeds display those special maverick qualities we hold so dear.

This is serious stuff as the recipient of the Groucho Maverick Award receives £10,000, Life Membership and a Gavin Turk sculpture.

CONGRATULATIONS TO PHOEBE WALLER-BRIDGE, WINNER OF THE GROUCHO MAVERICK AWARD 2016.
