After the success of 2015 the Artz year was finally brought to a close with the prestigious awards night. The event was once again held at the DW Stadium in Wigan which was selected as a venue last year due to rising numbers of students and ticket sales, this year however it exceeded even those limits and sold out to the figure of 350 tickets, this just goes to show how much the Artz Centre has grown in its short tenure in Birch Green, Skelmersdale.
The event this year was attended by some very influential people such as the Mayor of West Lancashire Cllr Nikki Hennessy , local headteachers, local businesses and supporters of what the Artz Centre are trying to achieve, and most notably the 2 event sponsors David Vella of the Karl Vella Group and Chris Brown from Enterprise Rent A Car, both whom generously donated £500 to aid the success of the event.
As always the selection process for the awards is a tough one, but come the night there could be no arguments with all of the eventual winners, especially the two newly crowned Student’s Of The Year, Grace Worth in the junior category and Anthony Ashton in the seniors. It is safe to say that the achievements of this group of young performers will be recognised for many years to come as preparations are now in place for 2016.
“We are so proud of Grace after everything she has achieved this year with the Artz Centre, she has worked tirelessly to succeed in drama, singing and dance and its so rewarding to see her honoured with this award, thank you everyone for the work you do“
Diane Worth – Parent (Junior Student of the Year)
