The 25th Annual Gold Badge Awards presented by British Academy of Composers & Songwriters.
Wednesday 13th October 1999. The Savoy, Strand, London
Each year, Britain’s songwriters pay tribute to the vast machinery of talent behind the scenes in the music business at the Academy’s Gold Badge Awards Luncheon Sponsored by MCPS.
Over the past 24 years the Academy has honoured broadcasters, recording artists, publishers, arrangers, producers, record company executives, and a host of other sometimes unsung heroes on whom the industry depends. Covering a wide range of disciplines, ages and musical styles, the Gold Badge Awards are British composers’ salute to an outstanding group of men and women who have made a special or lasting contribution to Britain’s entertainment industry.
This year the Academy will be awarding the Gold Badge of Merit to:
- Elkie Brooks
- Ian Dury
- Paul Gambaccini
- Ronnie Hazlehurst
- Conrad Leonard
- Bunny Lewis
- Dick Lewzey
- Dennis Matthews
- Julia McKenzie
