Bright Star Awards

Bright Star Awards 2017

Previously known as Sly's Awards; the Bright Star Awards is an urban music award. It is the brainchild and concept of Sly of Colourful Radio. Each year we are trying to improve engagement so that UK and international artists and the music that we love can get more recognition.



This year the Bright Star Awards presentation will be taking place as a live presentation / show from the Colourful Radio studios in London. Winners will receive an engraved Bright Star Award. In addition the plan is for a worldwide live video stream of the event and simultaneous Outside Broadcast (OB) on Colourful Radio across DAB, web, mobile and all digital platforms of the event and artists receiving their awards.

Port Royal Patties

The perfectly golden colour is a key indicator to the taste to come. The tasty flakes of pastry promise a great crunchy bite that will crumble into your mouth. That wonderful crunch of pastry gives way to a spicy flavourful filling that has a smooth gravy like quality that rounds out the Perfect Patty experience. One often has to squeeze the smooth filling into place to adjust the pastry to filling ratio of each bite. No one can eat a bit of a patty. It will always be consumed down to the last bite. Right down to the crumbs. These are the Finest Jamaican Patties in London, UK & The World!
