UK Theatre’s Most Welcoming Theatre Awards Open ...

The Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is in the running to be named the UK’s most welcoming theatre. It’s down to the people of Suffolk and the nation to cast their votes online to decide the winner. The competition is running from Tuesday 9 August and closes at 12:00 on Monday 19 September.

Karen Simpson, Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal said ‘The UK Theatre Awards are always an exciting time, it allows the people who enjoy visiting Theatre Royal to celebrate everything they love about this special place. Winning this award would reflect the vibrant arts scene of Bury St Edmunds and put a national theatrical spot light onto Bury St Edmunds and Suffolk’

As the only theatre on the National Trust’s portfolio, the restored Regency Theatre is a unique venue which was saved just over 50 years ago by the phenomenal efforts of the townsfolk of Bury St Edmunds and the people of Suffolk.

The awards are split into 12 regional areas with venues from across East Anglia competing to win the title. The winners of the regional competition will be announced on Thursday 29 September. Winning regional venues will then be put forward for the National finals which will take place on Sunday 9 October.

This is an opportunity for audiences to celebrate their local theatre and all they do for their local communities.

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

Julian Bird, Chief Executive of UK Theatre, said ‘Theatres throughout the UK play a crucial role in the heart of our communities and continue to thrive despite a challenging financial climate. This award gives audiences the chance to show how much their venue means to them.’
