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!
