We Won! Audience Choice Award for Fantastic for Families Announced

Saturday August 17th 2019 Share page

We're absolutely thrilled to have won the Audience Choice Award at this year's Fantastic for Families Awards. 

Voted for by a panel of expert judges from the creative sector, the Fantastic for Families Awards recognise the outstanding events that took place during 2018, exemplary family-friendly organisations and venues that welcomed families. The winners of the Awards, which are given by The Family Arts Campaign, the national initiative funded by Arts Council England to connect families with cultural opportunities, were announced at a ceremony at the Liverpool Everyman on 11 February 2019.

The Audience Choice Award is voted for by the public, so it has an extra special place in our heart. Rumpelstiltskin toured to 14 venues nationwide over 2017/18 and we shared the stage with local children and older people from the community local to those venues.

You have given us a wonderful boost of encouragement and confidence as we develop our new work for family audiences this year. We look forward to seeing you on our tour of The Lost Happy Endings, and we hope to meet your high standards again! Thanks again for all your support.”
