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.

In 2017, our four award categories will celebrate the efforts of people who have gone to extraordinary lengths to protect, save and share their local heritage.

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

There are Angel Awards in each country of the UK (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) and, this year, there will be a new award presented for 'Overall Winner'.

The awards recognise people who champion their local heritage and share and practice forgotten craft skills. They also celebrate efforts by young people and apprentices to learn about heritage.
