Our award-winning home

We're celebrating after receiving another award for our new home with Phoenix Dance Theatre on Friday night. Our architects Jacobs were joint winners of the SCALA (Society of Chief Architects of Local Authorities) Civic Building of the Year Award 2011 with Stanton Williams for Wiltshire Council Offices.

This award comes a week after we won the 2011 National Lottery Award for Best Arts Project and a month after our new home scooped the Design Excellence Award at the 2011 Insider Yorkshire Property Industry Awards.

But it's not just the building that's up for awards. We started the year with Martha Leebolt winning Best Female Performance (Classical) at the 2010 National Dance Awards and we end the year with Tobias Batley nominated in the Best Male Performance (Classical) at 2011 National Dance Awards. Don't forget you can support Martha and Toby through our Sponsor a Dancer campaign, they'd love you to.
