The UK's Most Welcoming Theatre Awards

UK Theatre has announced 12 regional and national winners of the My Theatre Matters! Most Welcoming Theatre Award in association with Smooth Radio.

More venues than ever before signed up to take part in this year’s award, with 256 theatres competing for the title.

All the regional and national winners will be invited to the UK Theatre Awards ceremony on Sunday 18 October where the overall winner of the My Theatre Matters! Most Welcoming Theatre Award 2015 will be announced.

The award is an opportunity for theatres to remind audiences how important local theatre is to their community.

“UK theatres are among the most iconic in the world so it is very exciting to honour the best venues across the nation," said Smooth presenter Paul Phear. "The awards are even more special because it is the audiences, as well as Smooth Radio listeners, who have chosen the winners.”
