Our write-up of fridays community arts & music awards.
On Friday The Florrie hosted the first Liverpool City Region Community Arts & Music Awards, which I’m happy to report was a huge success. The night brought together and celebrated people and organisations from across the city who are making a massive diference through arts and music projects.
Hosted by Florrie patron Ricky Tomlinson, Star of TV’s The Royle Family, the night included performances from local musicians Remée and The Baby Faced Beatles which really showed off the depth of young talent here in Liverpool. Guests were also treated to a three course evening meal before the main ceremony began.
With twenty four different people and organisations nominated for awards the competition was extremely tough. Before reveling the winners we’d like to congratulate everyone who was nominated, you all do amazing work within the city. Anyway, without further ado the winners were:
Young Ambassadors of The Year – Children of The Aftermath – Jimmy Cauty’s ADP
Education and Training Award – Rotunda
Health and Wellbeing Award – Spider Project CIC
Making a Difference Through Music Award – Mellowtone
Liverpool Acts Award – Jennifer John
Community Event of The Year – Granby Four Streets Community Market – simply the best
