This year’s Hall of Fame inductees will be the fifth group elevated to the top level, with the first BFNL Legends also to be named. There are 52 Hall of Famers listed in the BFNL to date, with previous induction evenings held in 1986, 1996, 2010 and 2014.
A selection panel has been appointed by the BFNL Board and includes chairman Peter Davey, Andrew Jakubans, Peter Tyack, Richard Jones, Cath Wicks, Ron Cawthan and Paul Byrne.
