Festival Awards MD James Drury told CMU: “It’s been a fantastic season, which has further demonstrated the British love of Festivals. The UK Festival Awards is the chance for the public to tell the industry which were their favourite events. Last year 500,000 votes were cast and we’re expecting even more people will get involved this time”.
