The Ivors celebrate, honour and reward excellence in British and Irish songwriting and composing. Presented and judged by music creators, they represent the pinnacle of musical achievement and peer recognition.
Richard Lightman commented: ‘I was invited to attend the Ivor Novello Awards as a board member of the Council of Music Makers which includes BASCA, MPG, MMF, FAC, and the MU and in my capacity as a member of the Copyright Committee of UK Music advising the government on copyright issues and the impact of Brexit on the Music Industry. Both SMFA and the University of Kent’s new Centre for Music and Audio Technology are academic partners in BASCA’s educational scheme.’
