Halton's flagship theatre invites residents to cast their votes
YOU could put your theatre up in lights ahead of the West End and help The Brindley get crowned The UK’s Most Welcoming Theatre.
Voting is now open for the award, part of the My Theatre Matters campaign in association with Classic FM.
It is designed to give a voice to theatregoers who value their local theatres and the public funding that is required to keep them operating for their communities.
Winners will be invited to the UK Theatre Awards ceremony at London’s Guildhall on Sunday, October 20.
Halton Cllr Phil Harris, board member for the arts, said: "Why not get behind your local theatre by voting for this award? It is free and will only take a minute of your time."
In a similar public vote in 2007, Halton’s flagship arts centre The Brindley won the title of Best Arts Project in the UK at The National Lottery Awards.
The Brindley beat stiff competition such as Tate Modern to reach the final, with Halton people voting in their droves. The prizes were £2,000, a trophy and a film about the venue being featured live on the show.
Halton's venue beat off more than 640 Awards entries, set up to celebrate and recognise the difference Lottery funded projects have made to the community.
