We are looking forward to welcoming you to the NMG Awards at the West Road Concert Hall on Friday.
Here are the final things you need to know:
11 West Road
There is NO parking directly at the venue but there will be street parking available on West Road and surrounding streets. This will be free and we will have stewards helping you to the nearest available space.
Please park thoughtfully and leave space for as many people to park as possible.
There is cycle parking at the venue but the venue is a rather long walk from Cambridge train station.
Doors open at 7pm, you are advised to arrive early to enable you to be parked and processed through ticketing before the event begins at 7:45pm
There will be an interval lasting at least 15 minutes approximately half way through.
The show will finish at approximately 10:45pm.
As we have to be out of the building ourselves at midnight we ask everybody to leave at the end of the show as quickly as possible to enable us to tidy up.
There is a pay bar available before the show and during the interval. It will close after the second half begins.
You may take drinks in the auditorium in plastics but the bar will not be serving whilst the show is in progress, you are discouraged from leaving the auditorium during the show unless absolutely necessary.
If you have an artist drink token you will be given this, along with your ticket on entry.
This should be treated as a £5 note so if you do not use the full value you will be given change back in cash.
The voucher can only be used once and must be given up on use.
Only artists who bought before the deadline are eligible for a drink token.
On arrival, nominated artists will be directed down the red carpet where media from television, radio and print will be gathered to interview selected acts.
Guests and sponsors will be directed a separate way.
Everybody is welcome to have their photo taken in front of our photo board where a professional photographer will be present in advance of the show and during the interval.
All photos will go up on social media following the event so by having your photo taken you are agreeing to this.
Once you are ready to enter the auditorium you must visit the box office to pick up your tickets. Again, nominated artists and guests will be split in to two queues.
Stewards will be in touch to guide you to your seats.
Please queue in the appropriate line (these will be split in to A-K and L-Z by SURNAME)
Give your SURNAME to the assistant.
Bands do not have to arrive together, tickets are allocated per person and not per band.
Please queue in the appropriate line.
Have your name but more importantly your BOOKING REFERENCE available.
In most cases, tickets will be listed under the name of the person who booked them online.
Dress code is formal.
This can mean suits, tuxedos and dresses but can be open to interpretation.
Absolutely no t-shirts, jeans, shorts or trainers will be permitted.
We reserve the right to turn away anyone who is not dressed, in our opinion, accordingly and in this instance no refunds will be given.
Personal photography in the auditorium is discouraged and will not be necessary as we will have local television and professional photographers documenting everything happening on the stage.
There are a small number of tickets available for the east balcony, some of these seats are restricted view.
These can be bought online until midnight on Thursday.
If we have any seats available we will sell these on the door for a higher price and they will be subject to availability.
We can no longer seat anymore guests with other friends/family and artists.
