Music charity Attitude Is Everything has announced the winners of its first Outstanding Attitude Awards, recognising music venues and festivals that best serve deaf and disabled audience members.

On the music venue side, the three winners are: The Albany in London, for provision of video-based travel information; Colston Hall in Bristol, for holding a conference on accessible music-making and investing in building changes and staff training; and Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena, for committing to provide BSL interpretation for all new events.

The three winning festivals are: Just So Festival, for splitting their programme into categories allowing people to assess which best suited their needs; Nozstock, for online access information and providing materials for people with autism and learning disabilities; and Reading Festival, for its ongoing support for deaf audience members, including providing BSL interpretation for main stage performances.

“The Outstanding Attitude Awards are proof that all live music events, regardless of size and resources, can think outside the box and become more inclusive to a wide spectrum of disabled audiences”, says Attitude Is Everything CEO Suzanne Bull.

“This year’s winners range from some simple but hugely impactful online resources, to a groundbreaking music conference and several cutting edge innovations for deaf fans” she continues. “I would like to congratulate all the winners on their success, and I hope other venues and festivals can take inspiration from their achievements and can-do approach”.

The six winners were selected from the 125 venues and festivals signed up to Attitude Is Everything’s Chart Of Best Practice.
