Are you involved in rescuing a historic place? If so, tell English Heritage about your work and you could be voted one of English Heritage’s 2011 Heritage Angels.
The English Heritage Angel Awards launched this year to celebrate the work of individuals and groups who have saved a significant historic place that was at risk of being lost forever. The closing date for entries is 12 August 2011.
There will be four annual awards for:
- the best rescue or repair of a place of worship
- the best rescue of an industrial building or site
- the best craftsmanship employed on a heritage rescue
- the best rescue of any other entry on the Heritage at Risk register.
Four projects will be shortlisted for each category and the people involved will be invited to meet Andrew Lloyd Webber and the other judges at a reception at the Palace Theatre in London’s West End. The reception will take place in the Autumn where the winners will be presented with a statuette in the form of an angel.
