The O2 Arena, London

We have a new home for 2011, The O2 Arena

Here at BRITs HQ we are delighted to make the first official announcement for 2011's extravaganza. You've heard the rumours and today we can confirm we are moving to the world's most popular music venue, The O2 Arena in London.

We can also reveal that the awards will take place on Tuesday 15th February, 2011.  The Launch will be held in London's Indigo2 on Thursday 13th January, 2011 and will be broadcast the following day on ITV 2 at 8pm.

We are planning quite a few surprises this year and will announce many more developments in the coming months. It's all very exciting and 2011's show should be our biggest and best to date! We'll be coming to you live on ITV on the night so make sure you put the date in your diary now.

Just like last year our very own news team we'll be bringing you all the latest stories, gossip and exclusive behind the scenes footage on the night.  Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to make sure you don't miss anything.
