James Drury, Managing Director of Festival Awards Ltd said at the time: “This year’s Awards were the most hotly-contested we’ve had, with over half a million votes, demonstrating just how important festivals are to the UK public.

“Despite the continued challenges of the economy it’s been an incredible year for festivals and the Awards is all about celebrating that. The winners should be rightly proud of their achievements, as should the rest of the industry.”
