Award Nominations

We’re delighted that two of the projects we worked on last year have been nominated for Museums and Heritage Show awards this year.

Copper Kingdom at the Amlwch Copper Bins on Anglesey has been shortlisted for the Culture Pros Pick, a search for the UK’s most inspiring museum or heritage visitor attraction of the past 12 months supported by the Guardian Cultural Professionals Network. Please vote for us here.

Lime and Ice in the North York Moors National Park Authority visitor centre at Sutton Bank has been shortlisted for the Innovations Award.

The winners will be revealed at the Oscars of the Museums World (as quoted by the London Standard) when comedienne, Sue Perkins, will be hosting a glittering London awards ceremony in May.
