In case you hadn't seen, Skiddle turned eighteen this year.

So to celebrate we hosted an unforgettable awards ceremony at Manchester's Science and Industry Museum last week, paying homage to the things we love most: gigs, clubs and festivals.

Hosted by brilliant Boltonian Vernon Kay, the event brought together Skiddle staff, event organisers, promoters, musicians and music lovers from across the U.K. to enjoy a slap-up meal, one or two drinks and plenty of music chat.

Entertainment came from the inimitable Mr Wilson's Second Liners, while Ultimate Power dished out the big ballads post-awards, before attendees spilled out into the night...
