Yorkshire Gig Guide Awards- Ceremony;

Celebrating Grassroots Music Sunday October 7th- 2018, 7.00pm -11.45pm

It was a thrilling award ceremony at the Imperial Club in Mexborough October 7th 2018.

Hosted by the lovely and impressively irrepressible, energetic, Ben Brettell and the wonderful grassroots music family of the Imperial in Mexborough.

It was raucous, fun and an exciting evening and a showcase for Yorkshire’s grassroots music.

The evening included live grassroots music from the wonderful Issimo as well as singer songwriter Gary Middleton and the Imperial’s very own band SBS.

The awards ceremony was hosted by Chris (the man in a hat) Martin, and the fabulous Tattie Lexi in a celebration of Yorkshires grassroots music.
