Arts, Business & Brand Identity Award for Penderyn
Two vastly different worlds came together on 9th May at the 21st annual Arts and Business Cymru Awards Ceremony held at the Wales Millennium Centre to recognise the best creative partnerships between business and the arts.
Our distiller, Laura Davies (pictured right above), was there on behalf of Penderyn Distillery to receive Arts, Business & Brand Identity award for our partnership with the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. We have worked with them over the last twelve months, sponsoring the Jazz Festival at the college and producing the Jazz Carols Evening at the distillery.
High profile Welsh performers, including Downton Abbey’s Tom Cullen, Coronation Street’s Caroline Berry, Suzanne Packer and Lee Mead from Casualty and singing star Rhydian Roberts presented the awards, which were specially commissioned from Cardiff based glass artist Jane Beebe, at the ceremony.
A&B Cymru’s Chief Executive, Rachel Jones said: “It’s a fantastic achievement to reach the milestone of the 21st anniversary of these Awards. Their success reflects the strong and continuing support of the private sector for the arts in Wales. This year’s nominated partnerships have been inspiring examples of what can be achieved when business and the arts work together. The Arts & Business Cymru team in North and South Wales are justifiably proud and congratulate all the winners and nominees.”
The award winners were chosen by an independent panel of judges who have expertise in practical art forms, sponsorship and the aims of the private sector.
