The West End Wilma Awards launched in November 2014, to help celebrate the best of UK Theatre and is now voted for 100% by the public.

The Wilma Awards were first held at Freedom Bar in Soho for the first year before moving to the Hippodrome Casino for 2015 and 2016 and then the Prince of Wales Theatre (Delfont Room) in 2017. For 2018 we moved to the Arts Theatre in Covent Garden, more than doubling the capacity of the venue. In 2019 the ceremony was held at Cafe de Paris and after a break over the pandemic returned in 2022, selling out the 500-seat Leicester Square Theatre.

Celebrity guests attending the ceremony over the years have included Mathew Horne, Marisha Wallace, Bonnie Langford, Harriet Thorpe, Beverley Knight, Martina Cole, Tracie Bennett, Eva Noblezada, Lesley Joseph, Sam Bailey, Kerry Ellis, Rachel Tucker, Suzie Mathers, Oliver Savile, Mazz Murray, Gina Murray, Natasha Barnes, Emma Williams, Summer Strallen and many many more!
