The Culture Awards 2013
Congratulations to all of the winners at the 2013 Culture Awards. The evening highlighted the wealth of diverse talent and creativity in East Kent from improvised jazz nights, to compelling folk music, inspiring new festivals, to innovative business partnerships….. and a thriving arts centre based in a church. You can see who won here
The audience were treated to a delicious summer banquet, entertained by Guy the Gramophone DJ, jazz band Hullabaloo and poet Dan Simpson who created a unique crowd sourced poem from the finalists. Paul Hendy hosted the ceremony with his usual style and panache.
We would like to thank all of our valued sponsors, in particular Canterbury College whose superb apprentices were on hand during the evening to provide invaluable support to the excellent Canterbury Christ Church University team.
A film of the evening will be added shortly!
The Culture Awards celebrate the rich cultural life of the Canterbury district and East Kent, highlighting individual and collective achievements and showcasing the quality and diversity of the local cultural scene.
We are delighted to welcome Canterbury College as our new principal sponsor for 2013.
The awards were created in 2011 by Canterbury for Culture (C4C), an independent strategic group, who represent the views and ambitions of the District’s cultural sector.
The Culture Awards will be held on 20 June 2013 at Augustine House, Christ Church University, Canterbury.
Canterbury for Culture, with East Kent representation, will oversee the short-listing of the Awards, with an independent panel of experts from East Kent judging the finals.
