Being nice really does pay off! UK Theatre has announced the 12 regional and national winners of the UK’s Most Welcoming Theatre 2017 in association with Smooth Radio.

This award, which is voted for by the public, is an opportunity for audiences to celebrate their local theatre. In 2016, the overall winner was The Mill at Sonning. This year, over 172 theatres competed for the coveted title and more than 40,000 votes were cast – more than in any other year.

Julian Bird, Chief Executive of UK Theatre, said:

“The response to this year’s vote has been incredible, showing how valuable theatres are to communities across the UK. It takes a skilled and dedicated team to run a venue. This award gives the public a chance to recognise that, and say thank you.”

The annual UK Theatre Awards take place at London’s Guildhall on Sunday 15 October, where the ceremony will be hosted by Sharon D Clarke.

The nominations for the 2017 Awards were announced recently. For the first time in the Awards’ history, all three nominated Best New Plays were written by women. The full list of nominees can be viewed here.
