Event Description


The Celebration of the Arts, sponsored by Wales & West Utilities, will be staged at the Sherman Theatre on the evening of Thursday 2 December 2021

Building on the success of A&B Cymru’s 2020 Awards Ceremony, the event will be live-streamed to a global audience and include performances and specially created films. If restrictions allow, a small number of guests will be invited to attend.

During the evening, up to six arts organisations will receive a £1,000 cash prize, recognising exceptional work during the pandemic. One of them will be awarded a top prize of £2,500.

A “roll-call” of private sector partners will also be announced during the event and each will be given a certificate of recognition of their commitment to the arts.

Finally, an individual from business will be named “Adviser of the Year” in recognition of crucial expertise and advice given during 2020/21, which helped to ensure their arts partner’s survival.

Celebrity guests will announce the winners and the event will be hosted bilingually.

The closing date for nominations is Thursday 2 September.
