Speaking to the event’s organiser, Thom Belk said: “Although it’s been a quick turnaround since the rescheduled 2020 awards, this year’s awards will take place at the usual time in the calendar.
“Since lockdown measures were lifted there have already been some really impressive performances by local bands and an array of fantastic local events so the categories should be hotly contested once again this year. We look forward to the musicians gathering again on the 27th”.
