About the WhatsOnStage Awards

The WhatsOnStage Awards are the only major theatre awards nominated and voted for by the public. Having now completed their 24th year, they are considered one of the top highlights of the theatrical calendar celebrating the best of UK theatre!

Stay tuned for more Awards news soon.


When nominations open voters can choose any person or show that is eligible according to the rules above. When nominations close, the top nominees in those categories are short-listed for the final vote. The exceptions to this are the technical categories as the nominees will be chosen by a panel of industry experts.

The nominees will be revealed in an online ceremony on 7 December.

The winners of the awards are announced at a star-studded ceremony on 11 February 2024.

The launch will be online only this year.

Tickets for next year’s ceremony will be on sale soon.
