J.K. Rowling and other Harry Potter Stars to Attend Pride of Britain Awards

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling will be among the celebrities due to attend the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards next week in London. A press release indicates that Jo and actor Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) will join Prince Charles and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown as well as actor Ewan McGregor and Harry Potter UK audio book narrator Stephen Fry among others at this event to be held October 9 at the Dorchester Hotel in London’s Park Lane. It will be broadcast the next day (October 10) on UK channel ITV from 9:00pm – 10:30pm. UPDATE 2: The Mirror is now reporting that Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) will take part in this event, however they do not mention Dan Radcliffe now, so perhaps there has been a change. We will continue to update this post with further information.

These awards honor those real life heroes in the UK, such as” an air stewardess who delivered and battled to save a 1lb premature baby at 30,000ft to Britain’s oldest man, the last First World war volunteer, who still visits schools to educate children at the age of 111 years old.”

Anyone who can capture video of this, please send it in!

UPDATE: The Mirror is running a contest for UK residents to win tickets to this event; for more, click here</>.
Thanks bremary!

Is Dan Radcliffe the hardest working guy in show biz or what??

Erm, excuse my ignorance (I’m not from UK), but is this the same “Daily Mirror” that we hear is the main source for false rumors in Britain? Isn’t it one of the biggest tabloids there?

Sorry if it’s not, I thought it was the same name.

yes, it’s the very same tabloid. But it’s also popular, and does some semi-legitimate stuff, like these awards. The lack of journalistic integrity is just sort of part of the fun.

The mirror is saying that Emma is going to be there with Jo Rowling, darnit! I want to see Dan.

Hang on, radcakesfan! It says Emma will be there “no mention of Dan Radcliffe”.... They don’t say his name, outright, but that doesn’t mean he WON’T be there! LOL I’m from “across the pond” as well….wish I could be there..I want to see JO!!!Will we be able to see this?

Ehh, i can’t get into her. first off, she’s female lol. Dan’s prettier! (ok handsome, gorgeous, whatever.) and he’s funny. Fer god’s sake, he wants to be shot out of a cannon. Who thinks like that? lol
