Warwick Arts Centre shortlisted for hat-trick of local tourism awards

Coventry Editorial 9th Sep, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

WARWICK Arts Centre has been shortlisted for a trio of accolades in this year’s Coventry and Warwickshire Tourism and Culture Awards.

The Coventry venue has been named as a finalist in the Best Venue Music, Arts & Theatre; The Kids & Familes Award and The Culture Award categories.

But the Warwick Arts Centre will have to beat out stiff competition from other finalists including The Belgrade Theatre, The RSC and The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum’s popular children’s television exhibition to take home the titles.

The awards, which aim to promote the area’s best restaurants, hotels, attractions and experiences are organised by Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce and Quidem, which owns Touch FM stations and Rugby FM, alongside support from Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership, Coventry City Council and Warwickshire County Council.

Welcoming the news, Alan Rivett, Director of Warwick Arts Centre, said: “It’s fantastic to be nominated for these awards alongside so many brilliant companies and organisations across Coventry and Warwickshire, which well represent the diversity of the cultural offer across the region.

“It’s testament to the friendly welcome and great experiences we’ve given to millions of visitors over the last forty years.”

This year has also proven busy for the Warwick Arts Centre with it celebrating both the University of Warwick’s 50th anniversary and the Arts Centre’s own 40th birthday.

The awards will be decided by a judging panel and announced at a ceremony at the Ricoh Arena on Thursday, September 24.
