Apply Today for Historic England Angel Awards

The Historic England Angel Awards celebrate the efforts of people taking action to champion their local heritage

Have you been involved in a project that has rescued a heritage site? Have you saved a neglected building and brought it back to life, fund-raised to protect a crumbling church or worked to help people understand it better? Then you deserve to be rewarded!

Since 2011, Historic England has celebrated heritage champions through its Angel Awards initiative, recognising the efforts of local people and groups who go to great lengths to preserve their heritage. Entrants can apply for themselves, or they can nominate another person or group for an award. The winners will be announced and presented with their awards at a glittering ceremony at the Palace Theatre in London in mid-autumn.

There are four award categories to apply for in 2017:

  • Best Rescue of a Historic Building
  • Best Contribution to a Heritage Project by Young People
  • Best Craftsmanship or Apprentice on a Heritage Rescue or Repair Project
  • Best Rescue, Recording or Interpretation of a Historic Place

The closing date for applications is very soon - Sunday 11th June.
