Arts Hamilton Gala Event

On November 15th, the Literary Committee of Arts Hamilton, and the Staff and Board of Directors held a Gala evening at Theatre Acquarius.  It was for the 17th Annual Literary Awards.

People on the short list were invited to attend the event but only found out if they had won during the ceremony.
