Certain Curtain Theatre shortlisted in E3 Business Awards

Preston-based professional theatre company Certain Curtain Theatre has been short listed as a finalist in the 2014 E3 Business Awards, which will be held at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton on 18th September.

The company, which produces dynamic original dramas exploring human rights and social issues, was selected from amongst hundreds of nominees across the North West to become one of the four finalists for the prestigious Social Enterprise of the Year category.

Reacting to the announcement, the company’s co-founder Claire Moore said: “It's wonderful to be a finalist and to have our work of 25 years recognised in this way.”

Speaking on behalf of 1 Events Media, which has developed and organised the awards, managing director Mubarak Chati said: "Last year marked the launch of the E3 Awards and we were very impressed then by the number and calibre of the nominees, but this year, we've seen even more. Perhaps it's testament to a recovering economy or just to the relentless 'can do' spirit that characterises the North West, but whatever the reason, the quality of entrants has been superb.

"We've had hundreds of nominations, and they've come from right across the region: Manchester to Merseyside, Cumbria to Cheshire. It's astonishing to witness the effort and ingenuity of so many individuals and organisations because so much commendable work has clearly been done. In compiling the shortlist, the nominations panel certainly had an unenviable task and for Certain Curtain Theatre Company to have secured a place in the final is an achievement of which it should be very proud."
