The award was received on behalf of Stage Entertainment by Michael Ball who is currently reprising his role of Edna Turnblad in “Hairspray” at the venue's Clyde Auditorium. Presenting the award, John Sharkey, Chief Executive of the SECC said:
“This award recognises the importance of theatre and special events and the integral part they have played in our success to date.
Stage Entertainment has contributed hugely to this area of our business and is a very worthy recipient of this award.

“Stage Entertainment has enjoyed great success at the SECC with shows including High School Musical, Hairspray and Strictly Come Dancing Live. It is great to work with such a versatile and successful venue and we are proud to accept this award at this important milestone in the venue's history.
