The recipients of the U.K.'s 35th Gold Badge Awards, held annually to recognize the achievements of often-overlooked members of the biz, have been revealed. The awards will be held, in association with the MCPS-PRS Alliance, on Oct. 29 at London's Park Lane Hotel.

The diverse list includes former Roxy Music member, session guitarist and producer Phil Manzanera; veteran composer Tony Hatch, best known for writing Petula Clark's hit "Downtown"; former BBC Proms director and current managing director of the Barbican Centre, Sir Nicholas Kenyon; and former Cocteau Twins singer Elizabeth Fraser.

Other winners include TV music composer and session musician Alan Hawkshaw, entertainment lawyer Richard Taylor, A&R executive, label boss and manager David Howells, producer Robin Millar, critic and broadcaster Spencer Leigh, U.K. soul singer Beverley Knight and folk artist Martin Carthy.

Veteran comedian Ken Dodd will also be honored. He scored chart success in the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties including the huge-selling 1965 No. 1 single “Tears.”

"The Academy is thrilled to be recognising the incredible contribution of such a diverse mix of personalities," said chairman of the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters David Ferguson in a statement. "All those awarded the Gold Badge have made a significant and lasting impression on the entertainment industry and deserve to be duly recognised."
