Okay, folks, here’s the news you’ve been waiting for…
Creative HEAD is thrilled to announce a brand new venue for the 2019 Most Wanted & The It List Grand Final, where our fourteen Most Wanted and six It List winners will be crowned.
Now, finding a venue befitting the enormous talent that makes up our Most Wanted awards is no easy feat…we’ve been to the Natural History Museum, Tate Modern, Guildhall, Royal Courts of Justice, we’ve crowned names from Sam McKnight, Eugene Souleiman, Zoë Irwin, Sophia Hilton and Syd Hayes to standout salons including Malcolm Murphy Hair, JAS Hair Group, Paul Edmonds and Ruffians to name just a few. What we seek is somewhere with presence, somewhere with style, somewhere with that extra something…and we hope you’ll agree this year’s location has it all…
For the first time ever, we move to Printworks in London’s Canada Water, a jaw-droppingly atmospheric space that houses some of the giant printing presses that once delivered the Metro and Evening Standard newspapers to London. Now a huge, looming warehouse of exposed metal and balconies that hosts some of the biggest DJ’s on the planet (Sven Vath, Peggy Gou, The Black Madonna, Moodymann, Nina Kraviz, Jeff Mills, Bicep… the list goes on), the whole thing feels like a cyberpunk movie set in a Berlin techno temple. And we think that’s a good thing.
Also making their Grand Final debut is our compere – the author, actress, comedian and self-confessed party seeker, Luisa Omielan. Her debut show ‘What Would Beyoncé Do?!’ stormed Edinburgh Fringe, resulting in sell-out UK dates and global demand, she’s been praised by The Guardian, The Times, metro and Evening Standard plus was named on Radio Times’ One To Watch list. And if there was any doubt of Luisa’s credentials on the Most Wanted & The It List stage, we refer you to the fact she is a trophy-holder in her own right – Luisa is a winner of the BAFTA for Breakthrough Brit. Boom!
