On receiving the award from Darcey Bussell, Bruce said: “Being honoured in a room full of creatives and artists makes this even more special. I’d like to thank our partners Tobacco Factory Theatres, Pavilion Dance South West and Wilton’s Music Hall. Without them, we could not have made Dracula.”


After a sold-out UK tour in 2013, Dracula will rise again this year, touring from September to December 2014.
