OffWestEnd offers a number of awards – the Offies for “full run” shows, the OffComms for short run shows, the OffFest for shows in theatre festivals, and the OnComm – a new award introduced in 2020 for online shows. In addition, we make the occasional OneOff award to recognise special achievements. Full information on our awards can be accessed via the menu tabs above.
For most of our awards, nominations are announced during each calendar year. Finalists are then announced in January, and the winners announced at the Offies Awards Ceremony, held in February or March. These ceremonies are normally held in a major OffWestEnd venue – in 2020, the ceremony was held in the wonderful Grand Hall at Battersea Arts Centre.
However, the impact of Covid-19 meant that the 2021 ceremony was held online. Click HERE to watch a 5 min highlights video on our YouTube channel.
The Offies Awards Ceremony 2022 will be held online on Sunday 20 February 2022 and broadcast free via Scenesaver.
You will need to register on Scenesaver (www.scenesaver.co.uk) in advance. The link to the ceremony will be available a few days before the event – visit the Scenesaver website and search for “offies“.
