What are the Historic England Angel Awards?
The 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 who have saved historic buildings and places.
In 2016 we expanded the award categories to celebrate the efforts of people who go to extraordinary lengths to protect, save and share their local heritage.
The awards recognise people who champion their local heritage and share and practice forgotten craft skills. They also celebrate young people, acknowledging their efforts to learn about heritage.
Award categories 2016
- Best community action project - sponsored by National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS)
- Best contribution to a heritage project by young people

We have now assessed all applications and published the shortlist, the best four applications in each award category. Winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony on the evening of Monday 31 October.
