Amazing news: the nominations for twelve categories of the BritMums Brilliance in Blogging Awards 2016  have been revealed……..

Catherine’s Cultural Wednesdays is one of them!

I started my blog while convalescing from a broken collar bone.  Once a week, Mr CW wanted me out of the house to prevent me going stir crazy.  Self-preservation he said: not sure whether it was mine or his.  Catherine’s Cultural Wednesdays is my way of sharing all the interesting stuff I encounter, with or without the rest of the CW household.

But as well as being read, the real intent is to enthuse others, you, to go and see “culture”, of any form, and not just the big exhibitions but the quirky, the local, the out of the way.

I’m beyond excited to be one of the ten bloggers shortlisted for the Readers’ Choice award.

What happens next is up to YOU.  Ten will become five (wasn’t that a Spice Girls track?) finalists.  Voting for the finalists is open from now until May 18.  You can cast your vote here or by clicking on the badge below.  There are lots of great blogs up for awards in all the categories to discover whilst you’re there, just please vote for me in the Readers’ Choice!
