The UK's Most Welcoming Theatre Award with Smooth Radio is now closed for voting.  

The winner in each Region/Nation has now been announced (see the full list below). We will crown the overall winner at the UK Theatre Awards ceremony taking place at London’s Guildhall on Sunday 15 October.

What makes a welcoming theatre?

There are many things that shape your experience when you visit a theatre; a friendly chat with box office staff, enjoying a delicious coffee in the cafe, feeling like you're part of your local community, or being entertained by the panto! The public vote gives you the chance to celebrate your local theatre and all it does to welcome you.          

Julian Bird, Chief Executive of UK Theatre, said: “Theatres play a vital role in communities across the UK, so it has been wonderful to see so many votes cast. This campaign brings together audiences, theatres, performers and producers and gives everyone the opportunity to celebrate their local venue.”

Paul Phear, Smooth Radio presenter, said: “It is a privilege to team up with UK Theatre once again as we crown the nation’s Most Welcoming Theatre. This award is even more special because it is the audiences, including our Smooth Radio listeners, who have chosen the winner.”
