About the Awards

Since its inception in 2004, the UK Festival Awards has been dedicated to recognising and celebrating the collective accomplishments of the nation’s most beloved industry.

Across its 21 categories, the Awards acknowledges the achievements of organisers and suppliers in the fields of programming, production, innovation, emerging talent, marketing, hospitality, catering and more.

Each category has its shortlist and winner determined via a combination of public vote and industry judges, and for 2017 this methodology has been further refined to ensure that the prestige of these internationally recognised accolades continues to increase.

Following several years at The Roundhouse in London, the Awards’ 14th edition will move to a new home within the capital at The Printworks, taking place on November 30th 2017. We hope you’ll join us there for what’s set to be a revitalised ceremony that’s more inclusive and atmospheric than ever.
