Edinburgh’s showbiz event of the year is back, and tickets are on sale to be part of the big day itself.
Half of the tickets for the Forth Awards at the Usher Hall have already sold out; remaining tickets are being released on April 22, and are expected to sell quickly.
Ticket-holders and celebrities will rub shoulders at the afternoon of showbiz glamour and community spirit being held at the Usher Hall on June 23, 2022.
Hosted by Boogie and Arlene from Radio Forth’s breakfast show, the event is going to be packed with fun, entertainment and, of course, emotions, as local heroes and living legends are given their chance to shine.
Making the star-studded event even more memorable will be a who’s who of the music and comedy scene. This year’s celeb guests are being kept a closely guarded secret, but previous year’s line-ups have included Sophie Ellis Bextor, Mark Almond, Lewis Capaldi, Wet Wet Wet, Erasure, Simple Minds, Callum Beattie, Paolo Nutini and many more.
Tickets will be on sale here costing £21.50 plus a booking fee.
Richie Jeffrey, Events and Marketing Manager of Forth One said: “We are delighted to bring The Forth Awards back to the Usher Hall after a few years break due to Covid. The ceremony recognises those living in our community as well as some of the biggest names in music and entertainment.
“It’s always a spectacular afternoon filled with fun and laughter, and amazing celebrations of outstanding achievement from Edinburgh and the Lothians.
