Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) is proud to announce that is a top five nominee in this year’s Yorkshire Gig Guide Grassroots Awards.

PAC was shortlisted in the Yorkshire Outstanding Large Live Venue category of the awards and after a public vote has now made it into the top five, seeing off competition from venues across the region.

The arts centre is now up against the Brudenell Social Club; The Underground, Bradford; The Leadmill, Sheffield; and The Hebden Bridge Trades Club for the top title.

PAC director, Janet Farmer, said: “We are thrilled to have been named as a top five nominee in the Yorkshire Gig Guide Grassroots Awards. We hosted the awards last year, so to actually become a finalist this year is a real honour, especially in the face of such strong competition. PAC has just celebrated a record breaking 26th sell-out show for 2018 so far, so this news comes at a really exciting time. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who voted for us, helping us get to this stage.”
