Time Out London and The Hospital Club are delighted to announce the final 100 in the h.Club100 and the Top 10 for the theatre category.

- Trevor White, Actor

The full list of categories comprises Digital & Gaming, Art & Design, Advertising, PR & Marketing, Fashion & Style, Film, Music, Performance (Opera, Dance, Comedy & Cabaret), Theatre, Publishing & Writing, and TV.
The final 100 were formally announced at an event on Monday 12 November at the Hospital Club, which many of the Top 10 and nominees attended.
Guy Chapman, MD of Target Live, sponsors of the THEATRE category, said,
"Given that Target Live is so associated with both the development of new talent and with working with some of the most creative people in the arts, we are proud to be supporting The Hospital Club in its re-launch of hClub100. Awards in theatre are too often just given to the old guard on the basis of their reputations, or to perceived new talent that are yet to prove themselves, so it is both refreshing and exciting to have an award that disregards age and rather acknowledges recent creative excellence."
The Hospital Club is delighted to welcome Time Out as Media Partner for the hClub100 in 2012, whose innovation, creativity and diversification ties in perfectly with the ethos of the campaign.
