What are the Historic England Angel Awards?

The Historic England Angel Awards were founded by Andrew Lloyd Webber and are co-funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation. Since 2011, these annual awards have celebrated the efforts of local people (individuals and groups) who have saved or enhanced historic buildings and places.

The Historic England Angel Awards celebrate the efforts of people who have gone to extraordinary lengths to protect, save and share their local heritage. Awards recognise people who have championed their local heritage, and shared and practiced forgotten craft skills; and young people and apprentices who have made outstanding contributions to heritage projects.

The Historic England Followers’ & Telegraph Readers’ Favourite Award is chosen solely by public vote.

There are Angel Awards in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and, this year, a new award was presented for Overall Winner.
