Exposed Awards 2016

A stonking celebration of the best that Sheffield has to offer, the Exposed Awards returns for its 10th year this March – and to celebrate reaching this milestone, we’re bringing in the festival season early, baby!

Yup, what better way to bring together the good people of this city than with our own mini-Glasto at the O2 Academy? Think the whole wellies, bunting and glow paint shebang. Defecating in a hole outside is, however, discouraged. We’re still waiting to hear back on our headline slot, but hopefully Alex Turner has received our voicemails by now. We’ll have confirmation in the next couple of weeks, like.


Simple: it’s YOU who decides the winners of the Exposed Awards 2016. Each category is decided 100% on votes cast by Exposed readers; it’s your chance to shout about the people and places you love, in the city you love, while we organise the big bash. No catch. Voting launches on January 7th at 12pm and runs until February 7th.



Everyone is invited – but be sure to grab your ticket early to avoid disappointment. £20 will get you a seat at the social event of the year along with some grub and tipple or two, while a mere £10 will get you a standing place. Each ticket will also provide access to the exclusive after party, at a secret location to be announced soon!
