Epic Awards

The Epic Awards shine a spotlight on the achievements of creative groups across the UK and Republic of Ireland each year.

The 2020 Epic Awards closed for applications on 14 June 2020. This year, a diversity of inspiring groups and projects were awarded at our first virtual ceremony on Thursday 22 October. Discover the stories of each winner. Read more in our press release.

Each year, shortlisted entries are put forward for the highly coveted People's Choice Award while winners and runners-up from each of the four main categories (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales) are selected by our panel of judges.

The Epic Awards are an annual chance for your creative group or project to be recognised for the incredible work you've done over the past year.

Heritage Theatr CymruThe theatre group, Heritage Theatr Cymru, started in 2018 and is made up of ten core women members and three men, with a number of other voluntary participants involved too. All projects are funded entirely by voluntary means, and any money raised from performing their plays to a public audience is used to fund the group’s production or is donated to thematically-linked charities. 

The group’s driving aim is to explore Welsh heritage in a local context, aiming for diverse membership and audiences as our themes explore female issues that are historical and also explore contemporary issues and attitudes. In 2019, Heritage Theatr Cymru developed 'Sing A Song A Sixpence' which tells the story of underprivileged women and prostitution in Merthyr Tydfil and a murder in 1908/9.
