The debut success of Another Fine Fest, a celebration of comedy, street theatre, music and street art, has earned the organisers a nomination for a Heart of Ulverston award.

The event was put together by Mark Greenhow, owner and curator of the Laurel and Hardy Museum, Jakki Moore, owner and manager of Beggar’s Theatre in Millom, and Dave Crossley, the man behind the Monster Monster club movement.

The trio has been nominated in the Group/ Project of the Year category, sponsored by Furness Building Society.

Mr Greenhow said: “It’s the cherry on top of what’s already happened really.

“Everyone told us what a good time they had but we had no idea this would happen, it isn’t something we were aiming for. I was invited to the awards last year and it was such a fantastic event and I can’t wait to go back.”

Ms Moore said: “It was worth all the hard work anyway because we had a ball organising it. I’m really excited, thank you Ulverston.”

Mr Crossley said the debut event had proved such a success that the team is in the early stages of planning next year’s festival.

He said: “First of all we need to organise a thank you party for everyone who helped us out.

“For next year a lot of people are wanting it to be over two days but I think what we’re going to do is build on the success of the one day.”

This year’s Heart of Ulverston Awards, proudly sponsored by the Evening Mail, Siemens, GSK and Ulverston Victoria High School, will be held at the Coronation Hall on October 10.

Prizes will be awarded for 11 categories: Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, Group/ Project of the Year, Teacher of the Year, Sports Volunteer of the Year, Carer of the Year, Courage Award, Environmental Volunteer, Parent/ Guardian of the Year, Employee of the Year, Lifetime Achievement Award.
