Warwick Arts Centre has been announced as a ‘top three finalist’ in the Live Music Business Awards 2016.
We are up for the ‘Best Venue Teamwork: Arts Centre’ award, which focuses on our booking process, marketing support, ticketing support and production team. Warwick Arts Centre is the only arts venue in the Midlands to be shortlisted and the final award announcement will be made in October.
Now in its seventh year, the Live Music Business Awards is the only event committed to presenting awards to the business people who drive the country’s contemporary live music industry. The awards recognise excellence and talent among promoters, venue operators, festival organisers and agents, through to artiste managers, tour managers, show producers, brand impact and record label partnerships.
Laura Elliot, Programme Manager, says: “To be a Live Music Business Award top three finalist is fantastic and a wonderful recognition of the work we have done, and continue to do, with different musicians, and music genres, from around the world. Our teams – both front of house and back stage are very dedicated and work hard to ensure each of our venues within Warwick Arts Centre appeal to both the artist and the audience. The result is that we consistently welcome new artists to the stage and our audiences as well as having artists return time and again.”
