The Latest Festival Awards: Brighton Festival triumphs!

Performers, directors, artists and more came together at the Latest Music bar on Monday 3 June for The Latest Festival Awards

Celebrating the best of Brighton Festival, Brighton Fringe, £5 Fringe Awards and the Artists Open Houses 2013, the awards show marked the perfect ending to another fabulous festival-filled May.

Brighton Festival were privileged to win the prize for the best children’s event (Flathampton), best classical event (How Like an Angel), best international act (Casus’ Knee Deep) and best outdoor event (Figures Libres: KompleXKaphaarnauM)

Brighton Festival also took second and third – so the entire catergory of prizes in fact – for outdoor work, where praise also went to Kaarina Kaikonnen’s Time Passes by and theatre spectacular A High Street Odyssey. Awards were also made to Brighton Festival acts Sam Lee and Daniel Kitson.

For the first time too, the festival’s Guest Director was awarded for outstanding contribution to the Festivals in May. This accolade for Michael Rosen comes hot off the heels of his Argus Angel in the final week of the Festival.

Sixteen awards were up for grabs on the night in total and Britain’s Got Talent star Lynn Ruth Miller provided comic relief.
