Heritage awards

Since 2009, the Heritage Awards have celebrated the genesis of icons in local, live music venues.

This annual accolade is given to UK venues that have played a crucial role in helping to create music history, giving now-famous acts their first-ever gig and helping them on their way to success.

Find out how each venue gave that crucial piece of early support by selecting the awards below.
