Museum is finalist in Civic Trust Awards

19 January 2011

The museum is delighted to find out that it has been successful in the 2011 Civic Trust Awards.  In addition we are very pleased that we’ve been chosen as the host venue for the awards ceremony in early March.   

From 333 national and international entries, 57 projects have been successful and made it onto the list of finalists.  The People’s History Museum by Austin-Smith: Lord, is the only finalist from Manchester although there are several other contenders from the North West.   

The Civic Trust Awards is an independent built environment awards scheme established in 1959 to recognise the very best in architecture, design, planning, landscape and public art.  Successful projects must also be culturally, socially or economically beneficial, and make an outstanding contribution to the quality and appearance of the built environment.

The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on Friday 4 March at the People’s History Museum.  The gala dinner and awards presentation will be hosted by Architect, writer and TV presenter George Clarke and Civic Trust Awards Managing Director Malcolm Hankey.  The keynote speech will be delivered by President Elect of the RIBA Angela Brady, former vice-chair of the Civic Trust Awards National Panel.
