    The honour of Play/Musical of the Year was awarded to the powerhouse femme fatale musical SIX, the hit West End show remixing the lives of Henry VIII's six wives in a pop-concert-style production. Although the show is currently under lockdown, the show is expected to kick back up from September and is currently booking until the end of January 2021. 

    Other nominees for Play/Musical of the Year included such top London musicals as Come From Away and & Juliet as well as the hit plays Life of Pi, Wife, and Fairview.

    Award winners for other categories included Dave for his hit song "Black", George the Poet for Influencer/Journalist of the Year, Jesy Nelson for her documentary Odd One Out, Juno Dawson for her book Proud, founder of This Ability Ltd Sulaiman Khan, Sune Sarpong for Inspiring Person of the Year, and filmmaker Andrew Onwubolu for Blue Story

    The 2020 Visionary Honours judging panel featured Boyd Hilton, Brenda Emmanus, Emily Jupp, Joanna Abeyie, and Tom MacRae.

    The Visionary Honours were established in response to the lack of inclusion and diversity in other major awards ceremonies.
