Sutton Cultural Awards 2016 - Honeywood Museum, 20th April 2016

Sutton residents who have contributed to the cultural life of the borough during 2016 were honoured at an awards ceremony in Carshalton. The Mayor and Mayoress of Sutton, Councillor Muhammad Sadiq and Mrs. Sadiq, presented awards to the winners at Honeywood Museum on the evening of Wednesday 20 April.

The Sutton Cultural Awards have been awarded annually by Sutton Council since 2012, when the Cultural Medal programme was established as part of the Olympic and Paralympic legacy. Each winner is recognised for their hard work and commitment to opening up culture for all Sutton residents.
