Black British Theatre Awards Celebrating 3rd year

Nominations open for the Black British Theatre Awards

The Black British Theatre Awards is the UK’s first award show to celebrate the excellence and influence of black performers and creatives in the theatre industry. Launched in 2019, and now in its third year, we are proud to report that the BBTA’s has had an even bigger impact and reach since it’s conception and more so since it’s broadcasting on SkyArts last October. They are very honoured to be broadcast again on SkyArts during the autumn of 2021 (date to be confirmed).

There have been many productions of note over the last year and we extended the nomination date in order to include and support productions during and after the pandemic.

This year’s Black British Theatre Awards nominations 2021 will include productions from 1st August 2020 to 1st September 2021. Nominations opened on Thursday 1st July 2021 and will close on Friday 3rd September 2021.

To fit the current climate, the BBTA’s are making a change to the usual nomination system. For this year, we will broaden the nomination criteria to include UK national productions including tours performed in a theatre live or delivered via streaming.
