The Prescot Festival is proud to have made the Community Event of the Year shortlist in the 2017 Echo Awards.
Nominations closed earlier in August, and the overall winner will be announced at a prestigious gala ceremony at the Titanic Hotel, Liverpool, on 15 September.
The festival, which has been bringing arts and music to the local community since 2005, has already received three accolades in the past two years – Community Group of the Year 2015/16 at the Knowsley Sports & Culture Awards and Prescot Town Council’s Community Group of the Year in 2017. In December 2016, artistic director Dr Robert Howard was honoured with an Exceptional Service Award from the British Arts Festivals Association.
Our thanks to all who have supported the festival over the years, to those who kindly nominated us, and to the panel of judges for sending us through to the grand final.
