Cumbria Life Culture Awards 2019

Winners at a previous award ceremony

The Cumbria Life Culture Awards reflect everything that makes the county’s arts sector special.

From a Titan among painters to a psychedelic rock band, a major regional exhibition to a fell-top choral commemoration of the centenary of World War One, there is breadth, as well as depth, to the winners.

The 2019 Culture Awards were the third organised by Cumbria Life.
