Vote for Cecil Sharp House in London Music Awards

We’re delighted that Cecil Sharp House has been shortlisted in the inaugural London Music Awards competition to find London’s Favourite Venue for music.

The awards are organised by the Mayor's Music Fund and Time Out readers are being invited to vote for their favourite venue.

It’s a real honour to be nominated along with venues like the Royal Albert Hall, Barbican, Royal Festival Hall and the Jazz Café. The winner will be revealed at a ceremony on 11 June.

As the nation’s leading folk arts venue and home to the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) and the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library (VWML), Cecil Sharp House has a rich heritage of live music.

If you’ve visited and enjoyed live music at Cecil Sharp House, please vote for us on the Time Out website. Vote now!

The House, located between Camden and Primrose Hill, hosts a vast range of live music from barn dances, ceilidhs and performances from local musical groups. It also serves as a platform for everyone in folk and traditional music from emerging names to headline acts like Bellowhead, Martin & Eliza Carthy, Cara Dillon, and Kate Rusby.

Acts like Mumford & Sons, Laura Marling, Graham Coxon, and Goldfrapp have also graced the stage in the iconic Kennedy Hall and, in 2012, TimeOut voted us as the second best live music venue in London.
