Historic England Angel Awards 2016 Short List Announced

A group of young "Heritage Hunters" are encouraging their community to celebrate local heritage. The short list of 20 heritage groups and projects in 2016 have now been chosen to go forward to the finals of the:- 'Historic England Angel Awards' that are to be held in London, on Monday, 31 October 2016.

Founded by Andrew Lloyd Webber and supported by his Foundation, the Historic England Angel Awards celebrate the efforts of individuals and local groups all over the country who put hours of hard work and enthusiasm into saving derelict or damaged historic landmarks and bringing them back to life.  We are told that in 2016 the group have expanded the award categories to recognise the inspirational young people who are helping to protect, save and share their local historic places.

Other new categories celebrate...

►  The 'Best Community Action Project'.
►  The 'Best Research Project'.
►  The 'Best Rescue of a Heritage Site'
►  The 'Outstanding Contribution to Heritage'

The award will go to an individual or group who has worked tirelessly to save and share a part of our heritage.

Andrew Lloyd Webber said:- "The Angel Awards celebrate once again the unsung heroes of heritage. I am passionate that our heritage is protected, valued and enjoyed by all. I am particularly thrilled that this year we recognise the increasing role of young people in preserving our heritage. In a year when Westminster has been put on the World Heritage register as a site at risk, it is exciting that this year's shortlist proves that people of all ages are dedicated to preserving our heritage and doing so in ever more inventive ways."

Duncan Wilson, Chief Executive of Historic England, said:- "This year's shortlist shows that heritage angels come in many guises and all are dedicated to saving and sharing our spectacular historic environment. The impressive young people among those we are celebrating this year show that our historic places speak to all generations and that anyone can get involved in protecting and championing our heritage."

Groups from all the shortlisted entries have been invited to attend the Historic England Angels Awards ceremony at the Palace Theatre in London's West End which the judges:- George Clarke, Emma Bridgewater, historian Bettany Hughes and the Dean of Westminster, John Hall will also be attending.

Historic England are now inviting members of the public to vote for their favourite entry online.
