Catching Up with Nordoff Robins and the O2 Silver Clef Awards
The O2 Silver Clef Awards 2019 rolled out the blue carpet for a star-studded evening earlier this month.
Hosted by Nordoff Robins, this years’ O2 Silver Clef Awards saw a host of stars including Ed Sheeran, Liam Payne and Sam Smith take to the stage to celebrate the incredible work of the Nordoff Robins charity.
As the UK’s largest independent music therapy charity, Nordoff Robins uses music to ‘enrich the lives of people with life-limiting illnesses, disabilities and feelings of isolation’.

The charity was founded by pianist Paul Nordoff and special education teacher Clive Robbins. For over 50 years, their dedicated team have worked to cultivate positive emotions and interactions across a range of expertly developed music therapy sessions.
The O2 Silver Clef Awards are a particularly special occasion on the international music calendar, having raised over £11 million for Nordoff Robins since 1976.
The A(wards) Team
The O2 Silver Clef Awards have been through some redesigns since their inception, but once element remains the same: the iconic Silver Clef.
Our awards are manufactured in-house. From design to delivery, every award is assembled by hand by our expert team. The O2 Silver Clef trophies feature a premium polished metal. We source high-quality aluminium and achieve the polished finish at our own facilities.
Smooth, laser-cut acrylic adds electrifying detail with custom UV-print.
The base is anodised; the anodising process infiltrates the metal and creates a bright, hard-wearing colour. This method is a subsurface process and strengthens the material. Unlike plating, which has the potential to tarnish, anodising won’t fade over time. While we can’t pantone match anodising, this rich blue is on-brand and clearly visible on stage and in photos.
