Get voting for your chance to win £250 in Theatre Tokens!

The UK Theatre Awards are on the hunt again to find the UK's Most Welcoming Theatre 2018. We may have been pipped to the post last year, but we are back in the running this year, however we need your help.

With 175 venues across the country competing to take home the award we would love it if you could vote for us, it’s also chance for you to be entered into a draw to win £250 in Theatre Tokens. This is a great opportunity for audiences to celebrate their local theatre and all that they do for the community. The 12 Regional and National winners of the vote will be announced on 28 September 2018. The overall winner of the award will be announced at the UK Theatre Awards on Sunday 14 October.

In the last year we have helped nurture local talent in our wonderfully received production of West Side Story, which we hope to be the first of many similar productions. Our Learning and Participation department have developed a whole brand new exciting programme for young theatre fans, such as our Young Company productions and also our workshops throughout the summer and beyond.

The UK Theatre Awards are the only nationwide Awards to honour outstanding achievement in theatre throughout the United Kingdom. This year's ceremony will again take place at London's historic Guildhall. The UK Theatre Awards are supported by Theatre Tokens.

Julian Bird, Chief Executive of UK Theatre, said: “Theatres play a vital role in communities across the UK, so it has been wonderful to see so many votes cast. This award brings together audiences, theatres, performers and producers and gives everyone the opportunity to celebrate their local venue.”

Please make your vote count and vote for us at  The winners of this year’s award will be decided by a public vote between 12:00 on Tuesday 7 August and 12:00 on Tuesday 18 September 2018.
