North East Culture Awards
ANNOUNCEMENT - NEW AWARDS EVENING DATE CONFIRMED
Due to the sad news of the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, the Culture Awards, planned for 8th September, were postponed.
We are delighted to announce that the awards will now take place on Tuesday 15th November 2022
The Culture Awards celebrate and showcase the cultural infrastructure and diversity of our fantastic region - from the Tees Valley to the Scottish Borders.
Culture in the North East is thriving and the Awards are a great demonstration that talent truly abounds in our region. It is a delight to be celebrating the people behind this talent and their considerable achievements. We have a lot of great art and culture to be proud of here and with the Culture Awards now into their fifteenth year, the scene shows no signs of slowing.
The awards ceremony brings together the North East's arts, heritage and cultural sectors with live performances and artistic showcases from some of the region's top talents in music, art, dance and comedy.
The awards are open to anyone who has made an impact or a significant contribution to the North East cultural landscape in the period from July 2021 to July 2022. There are a wide range of categories and anyone can nominate an individual, organisation, event, exhibition etc for consideration - but be sure to get your nominations in before the deadline of 5pm on Monday 25 July 2022.
All the finalists will be invited to the special celebration evening taking place on Tuesday 15th November at Durham Cathedral - and you can join us too! Book your tickets here!
NOMINATIONS HAVE NOW CLOSED FOR 2022
Congratulations on such a smooth running and positive event!
We had a brilliant time on Thursday night – thank you, Helen and the team for making it happen. Congratulations and thanks again for organising such a timely and well-staged event.
Thanks for having me. I was so happy I had the opportunity to do that. It was an experience I won’t be forgetting any time soon.
This is an important moment and it certainly felt that way from the reception in Durham Cathedral which was incredibly warm and rousing. I felt part of a bigger community than the Disability arts community, I felt part of the arts community of the North East. That moment will be with me forever.
Thanks so much for having me, it was great. It's been a long time since I've stood up in front of that many people, and such an amazing space to do it in too.
