We are thrilled to announce that we have been shortlisted in the ‘Best Use of Music in Towns and Cities’ category at this year’s Music Cities Awards! 

 The Music Cities Awards is a global competition designed to acknowledge and reward the most outstanding applications of music for economic, social, environmental and cultural development in cities and places all around the world. The awards also aim to promote best practice and demonstrate the value of music to the world. For us, this is as much about the journey we are on, as in the destination! 

 To be nominated within the ‘Best Use of Music in Towns and Cities’ category, judges were looking for exceptional uses of music that has ‘benefited any aspect of city life from tourism to economic development to supporting musicians to community development to housing to health to education’.  

 Luke Jones, CEO, Music Cities Events said: “It’s truly inspiring to see how people and organisations all around the world are using music to improve and develop their towns and cities, or to create more value for their organisations. This year’s applications have ranged from tools to improve health, to long-term regional development plans that are based on music, to digital music museums.  Our aim is to showcase these incredible initiatives so that more and more places and people understand the value of, and advocate for, music.”.  

 The live ceremony will be held virtually on Tuesday November 9th and will consist of ten short panel discussions, one for each award category, during which all the nominees will present their projects and winners will be announced.  

 A huge congratulations to our team on this amazing shortlisting, and best of luck to all the nominees!
