The Liverpool City Region Community Arts & Music Awards recognise the achievements and best practice of third sector and not for profit organisations across the Liverpool City Region in recognition of arts and music delivered directly within our local communities and neighbourhoods.
The Awards are a great opportunity to share best practice, reward achievements, celebrate groups and organisations and recognise the importance and difference arts and music make to local communities.
Nominations closed on the 28th February 2018 and it all culminates in a Grand Black Tie Gala Dinner held at the Florence Institute Trust on 20th April 2018, hosted by Liverpool’s very own Ricky Tomlinson with special guests.
Sponsored by ComMutual, Anne Lundon, CEO of the Florrie said, “celebrating grassroots arts and music events that take place across the city region allows us to cut across things that very often divides us as communities and plays a key role in defining and sustaining our neighbourhoods, maintaining our cultural heritage and connecting generations and new audiences”.
Award Categories are:
Florrie Young Ambassador of the Year
Health and Wellbeing
Culture and Heritage
Making A Difference Through Music
Education and Training
Florrie Hall of Fame
