Vote for your favourite Brighton Festival show

It wouldn’t be a proper Brighton Festival without a vast range of exciting and exclusive awards up for grabs in May.

Both Brighton’s daily newspaper The Argus and weekly magazine Latest 7 give out a number of awards throughout May in recognition of artistic excellence - and you can vote for your favourite show to win one!

The Argus Angel Awards were introduced in 2007 to award artistic excellence during the Brighton Festival and the Brighton Fringe. From theatre and dance to music, live literature and exhibitions – The Argus Angels are presented to artists and performers who truly stand out from the crowd. Based on the famous Herald Angels of The Edinburgh Festival, the trophies are carved by hand and carefully flown down from Scotland in the suitcase of the sculptor himself. Back now for their seventh year, audience members can nominate their favourite performance for an Angel with the link below -

Alternatively, if people see an event and want to vote immediately, they can also text the word ARGUSANGEL to 80360, followed by their nomination. Twitter-users can also nominate by using the hashtag #argusangel.

Taking into account hundreds of public nominations, Latest 7 magazine assemble a comprehensive judging panel of media experts to decide the winners of the annual Latest Awards. Voting is simple - visit and click on the show you want to vote for. Shows are divided into fifteen different catagories; from Most Groundbreaking Act to Best Venue and Star of the Festival.

So if you were crazy about Cirkopolis, found Flathampton fabulous or marvelled at Mariele Neudecker, get voting!
