The presentation evening for the Glamorgan Drama League's annual Glammies awards changed venue again this year, to the Paget Rooms in Penarth on Sunday 28th June at 7pm.

Want the nominations or winners? The photogallery of the evening is now available.

There was quite a difference with this year's awards: buffet first, followed by an evening where there were many new categories (supporting actor awards in all areas), and the moderators didn't give the long speeches at the beginning of the evening, but spoke a little about each shortlisted entry just before that categoary of awards were announced.

Special guest of the evening was our very own Sarah Lark who sang brilliantly across the evening - we sang a couple of songs from Oliver! with her - and Sarah spoke very encouragingly and supportively to open the awards evening itself.

There were representatives of several other groups from across the Glamorgan Drama League's membership, and we had the traditional competition this year, from Swansea's Dylan Thomas Youth Academy and Cardiff's Stars Performing Arts. New on the scene this year though was Aberdare's Retro Performing Arts, with their very strong entry of RENT. Both Stars and Retro also performed during the course of the evening.

As is always the case with the Glammies: we had a good night. The Unknown Theatre Company's outstanding record at the awards was upheld with an amazing 29 nominations across the acting awards. Admittedly, there were more awards this year, with supporting actor awards having been introduced across the categories. In some cases, some performances were nominated as both leading and supporting roles!

And in the end - 6 awards!

Well done, everyone.
