Nominees and guests on the red carpet

A lot more than 110 visitors gathered for the 3rd Indies awards on Thursday (Nov 18), organised and hosted by the Bishop’s Stortford Unbiased to honour the champions, heroes and stalwarts of the community community.

Just before they took their seats in the auditorium at South Mill Arts for the awards ceremony, the assorted nominees, their friends, sponsors’ reps and Indie team mingled in the foyer at the South Street location and posed for photos on the purple carpet taken by photographer Vikki Lince.

This is a variety of pics of people who had been joyful to be ‘papped’…
