A new time and venue have been revealed for the first Northamptonshire Local Music Awards.
The event was due to take place earlier this year at the Deco Theater but will now be held at Charles Bradlaugh in Northampton on Monday December 12.
More than 2,500 people nominated musicians and venues in 14 categories earlier this year after the launch of the event which organizers hope will become an annual date on the music calendar.
There will also be an award for Outstanding Contribution to Local Music which will be decided independently by the organizers and awarded to someone who has done their best to support Northamptonshire’s music scene. The ceremony was originally due to take place in September but was postponed following the Queen’s death and the ensuing period of national mourning.
The move to the Charles Bradlaugh follows a previously postponed date in November.
In a statement, organizers said the venue change was “due to reasons beyond our control” and thanked everyone who supported the event and The Deco staff.
The Northamptonshire Local Music Awards at Charles Bradlaugh will take place from 7.30pm to 10pm.
Tickets are on sale now and cost £10 before fees.

Tragic – Disgraced Gentlemen
