This is the industry’s gold standard and for a city council to take the number one spot is phenomenal. It’s a fantastic endorsement of everything we’ve achieved and the creative risk-taking we’ve been allowed to take. It’s a real credit to the organisations who have helped make this happen and of course the people of this city and beyond who love what we do and turn up in their thousands.”
