9th June, 2016
The Nottinghamshire Heritage Awards recognised and rewarded excellence and innovation in museums, historic houses and heritage organisations throughout Nottinghamshire. The event took place at Nottingham Trent University’s stunning new Pavilion Building at the Clifton Campus on Wednesday 8th June. More than 100 guests attended the Awards to celebrate the many achievements of Nottinghamshire heritage sites.
There 26 entries from 15 heritage organisations, both large and small which demonstrated outstanding achievements and the exceptional work taking place across Nottinghamshire. The submissions were all of a high quality; the shortlisting panel were particularly impressed with the variety of entries, many of which developed relationships with communities and helped to build partnerships with other local businesses.
The shortlisting process narrowed down the entries, but there were still some tough decisions to be made during the judging event. Each shortlisted entry was invited to give a presentation about their submission to the judges. The awards were judged by John Holmes of BBC Nottingham, Dr Andrew Gritt of Nottingham Trent University and Erin Huckle of Experience Nottinghamshire.
Professor Lloyd Pettiford, Associate Dean, College of Arts and Science, School of Arts & Humanities at Nottingham Trent University welcomed guests to the ceremony and did an excellent job of ensuring the evening ran smoothly whilst entertaining the guests. The judges also took part in the awards ceremony, sharing their thoughts on all the projects they had looked at, both Erin and Andrew presented the awards.
