Weymouth’s first Night LIVE Awards, sponsored by Weyline, celebrating live music and venues in Weymouth took place last night at Ayya Bars following a last minute change of venue after it became apparent that the new awards had created so much interest that there just wasn’t going to be room for everyone who wanted to attend in Boho Bar the planned hosts.

Nearly 400 votes were cast for these awards organised by Boho Bar and independently verified by Alex Fuhrman!

The awards evening was a great evening of fun and live music with attendees being treated to a few hours of jams by many of the talented musicians nominated in the awards.

Next year the plan is to hand over the event to another bar to host the second Night LIVE Awards and make it even bigger and better
