Repeating its category success of 2010, Abbey Road was again named Studio of the Year at the latest edition of the Music Week Awards, which took place at The Roundhouse in London on 24 April.

The Abbey Road team (pictured) collected its trophy from producer and MPG (UK) chairman Steve Levine.

Other winners included Stuart Price, who named Producer of the Year in acknowledgement of his contribution to Take That’s Progress. The British musician, songwriter and producer’s other clients during the last year have included Kylie Minogue, Scissor Sisters, Brandon Flowers and Bernard Sumner.

Brighton’s Concorde 2 was declared Live Music Venue of the Year, while The Strat Award – which traditionally provides the climax of the MWA evening – went to PPL chairman/CEO Fran Nevrkla. London recording/rehearsal complex The Premises Studios was the recipient of the Julie's Bicycle Green Business Award.

Eliza Doolittle, Marcus Mumford and Rumer were among those presenting awards during an evening that also yielded gongs for HMV, BBC 6 Music, Atlantic Records and Island Records.
