The Plaza is delighted to announce it has recently won a new award in recognition of its inclusive ethos and its commitment to serve the needs of the whole community.
The Lady Doris and Sir Sydney Samuelson Award was presented to Christine Physick for her outstanding contribution to cinema presentation for the benefit of audiences with disabilities.
Jan Dunn, Chair of trustees at the Plaza said:
“The Plaza is extremely proud of all the fantastic work that Christine has achieved and we the Trustees were delighted that Christine won this very prestigious award, which is so greatly deserved”.
Christine Physick, Arts and Education Director added:
“This is an amazing achievement for the Plaza to be recognised nationally for its ethos of inclusivity and ambition to meet the needs of everyone in our community. I would like to thank the trustees, staff and volunteers who have provided back up support for the Plaza’s arts and education programme. Additionally, thanks are also due to the creative freelancers and volunteers for their commitment to delivering an exciting and innovative range of creative projects for all generations.”
The award was presented by Sir Sydney Samuelson, former British Film Commissioner, who together with Sir Richard Attenborough played a crucial role in securing Jurassic Park, the first ever film screened at the newly opened community Cinema in July 1997.
