The public vote for Outstanding Contribution to Culture at this year’s Liverpool City Region Culture and Creativity Awards is now open.
Imaginarium Theatre, a community-based theatre company in Knowsley and associate company of Shakespeare North Playhouse, is a finalist in this category.
The People’s Choice Award is the only one of 15 categories to be decided by a public vote.
You can vote here until Friday 9 February.
The Liverpool City Region Culture and Creativity Awards were established in 2019 under the Mayor Steve Rotheram’s 1% for Culture initiative. They honour the value and contribution the cultural and creative sectors bring to the region and the difference they make to people’s lives.
This year’s winners will be announced at the awards ceremony at St Helens Rugby League Stadium, hosted by BBC Question of Sport captain and Olympic Gold Medallist Sam Quek MBE.
Incredible Edible Knowsley is also a finalist for the Environmental Award which recognises the impact culture and creativity has on the green agenda, and Natalie McCool, from Knowsley, has been named as a finalist for the Artist/Creative of the Year.
Cllr Shelley Powell, Knowsley Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Communities, said:
“Last year Knowsley delivered another captivating and packed programme of cultural events and activities and it’s fantastic to see Knowsley based people and organisations recognised for their contribution towards creating culture opportunities for our local communities.
“I wish Imaginarium Theatre the best of luck and would encourage people to vote for them.”
