Curzon honoured at glitzy ceremony
STAFF from Clevedon’s historic cinema met stars from the world of TV and music during The National Lottery Awards 2012.
The Curzon had been selected as a competitor in the awards’ heritage category after it was previously given funding by The National Lottery for a major refurbishment.
The awards, which were decided by a public vote, were held to recognise the achievements of projects given such funding and the Curzon was placed as runner-up in its category.
On Saturday, Gareth Negus, Cathy Poole and Amy Cousins from the Old Church Road cinema attended a glamorous ceremony, which was screened on BBC One and hosted by actor and singer, John Barrowman.
Gareth said: “We have been overwhelmed by the enthusiastic support we have received during the public voting, not only from our local community but also from friends and supporters all over the country.
