The ceremony was part of the Government’s scientific Events Research Programme relating to COVID-19, looking at using enhanced testing to examine how events can take place without restrictions. The audience was comprised of frontline workers, with 2500 tickets offered via a ballot. Attendees weren’t required to wear masks or socially distance, but they did have to provide proof they tested negative for COVID-19.

Winners Little Mix, Haim, Arlo Parks, The Weeknd and Griff all have UK tours in the diary for either 2021 or 2022. Click on their names to find out where you can catch them live and book tickets.
