We celebrate, recognise and reward local live entertainment, arts and culture events, promotions, individuals, venues, businesses and more through an annual awards ceremony at the Civic Theatre in Chelmsford. The event has been running for 13 years and we have hugely benefitted our local cultural community in that time - The awards have become a part of the fabric of local cultural society and strongly recognised. We now want to push this Essex-Wide (we have been covering the whole county for a year already) but need funding to do so - We want to produce a better organised, promoted and more effective event in 2020 than ever before with maximum reach and maximum benefit for all. To do this, we need capital from the outset to produce something that really raises the county's cultural profile and helps artists, promoters, local businesses and more, to benefit from this terrific event.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This is a great show and one of a kind in this country - It's non-profit, raises money for charity and really celebrates local culture in a very special way. The awards create huge benefit for everyone who wins one and the live event itself has become a real part of local culture itself. It can and will be bigger and better though. If we can more fully represent the county's talented and dedicated individuals, we can have more impact, raise more money and benefit so many more people across the county.
