The A&R Awards are back: 2021 event will take place November 9 in London

The best night out in the UK music industry’s calendar is back: Following government announcements today (February 22), we’re delighted to confirm that The A&R Awards, presented by Music Business Worldwide, will return on the evening of Tuesday, November 9.

The ceremony will take place at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, Central London. Mark it in your calendars.

After an enforced break for obvious reasons in 2020, the A&R Awards 2021 will once again recognise and celebrate the best in UK songwriting, production and, of course, A&R – across record labels, management companies, music publishers and more.

As always, the awards will cover both the major and independent sectors of the UK business, with three particularly special moments along the way: The A&R Icon, The A&R Loyalty Award and the prestigious Sir George Martin Award.

Sponsorship opportunities for the A&R Awards 2021 across a range of categories are available now. All interested parties should contact:

We have a limited number of tables that will go on sale in the coming weeks – look out for an announcement via MBW. In the meantime, those wishing to register early interest in booking a table/tables should contact:

Voting on this year’s awards will begin in the autumn.

Given that we weren’t able to celebrate and recognise any A&R successes last year, our judges will be asked to consider all UK-centric A&R campaigns across a two-year period beginning in October 2019 through to September 2021.Music Business Worldwide
