The 33rd Annual Gold Badge Awards presented by the British Academy of Composers & Songwriters.
Wednesday 25th October 2006. The Savoy, Strand, London
Each year, Britain’s songwriters pay tribute to the vast machinery of talent behind the scenes of the music business at the Academy’s Gold Badge Awards Luncheon sponsored by MCPS.
Over the past 32 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:
- John Altman
- Lesley Douglas
- Chris Farlowe
- Sir Alistair Hunter
- Andrew King
- Christine McVie
- Rhett Davies
- Brian Freshwater & Jackie Hughes
- Howard Goodall
- Phill Jupitus
- Johnny McElhone
