The Queen’s Theatre is hoping to win a national theatre award for the third year running after being crowned the UK’s Most Welcoming Theatre in 2016 and 2017.

The winners of this year’s UK’s Most Welcoming Theatre award in association with Smooth Radio will be decided by a public vote which opens from Tuesday, August 7 to noon on Tuesday, September 18.

Speaking about winning the award last year, Matthew Russell, executive director at the Queen’s Theatre said: “Thank you to everyone who voted for us and to all the staff at the Queen’s Theatre, whose continuing dedication and professionalism has earned us this award.

“We’re making great developments to our rich programme of work, offering an increasingly diverse and affordable programme of quality entertainment all year round to appeal to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.”

Every person that votes will be able to opt-in for the chance to win up to £250 in Theatre Tokens.

The 12 regional and national winners of the vote will be announced in late September and the overall winner of the award will be announced at the UK Theatre Awards on Sunday, October 14 at London’s historic Guildhall.
