Museum nominated for three awards

19 August 2010

The People’s History Museum has learned in the last few days that it has been nominated for three different awards – for the website, The Left Bank cafe bar and for the building. 

Website – DADI Awards 2010

Now in their fourth year the DADI Awards, in association with Leeds Live it Love it, has become synonymous with digital effectiveness, where agencies, clients and individuals from across the UK show the depth of their online thinking and the breadth of their digital design.  The panel were looking for evidence of clear strategic thinking, innovation and effectiveness and they were extremely impressed with the entries.

The museum’s website was submitted by our digital agency Reading Room.  We are delighted that we are one of five finalists in the Best Not-For-Profit/Charity website or campaign category.

The results will be revealed and the trophies handed out at the awards ceremony taking place on Friday 12 November in the Royal Armouries in Leeds.

Left Bank cafe bar – Manchester Food and Drink Festival Awards 2010

Our new cafe bar, The Left Bank, has been shortlisted for an award as part of this year’s Manchester Food and Drink Festival. 

The Manchester Food and Drink Festival Awards provide a benchmark for excellence in the hospitality industries throughout Greater Manchester.  The judges had some tough decisions to make this year, resulting in a very strong set of contenders in all categories.

The Left Bank cafe bar is shortlisted in the Best Coffee Shop or Casual Dining Venue and is up against five other venues.  Now you can have your say and vote for your favourite.  Go to the Food and Drink Festival website to vote for The Left Bank cafe bar.

The Gala Dinner and Awards ceremony will be held on 11 October at The Hilton Hotel Manchester where the award winners will be announced.

Building – Building of the Year Award 2010

The museum is one of seven Greater Manchester buildings in the running for a prestigious local award. The developments are all being considered for the Greater Manchester Building of the Year Award 2010 awarded by Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce.

The list of potential winners includes three Stockport developments the redeveloped Aquinas College, the Stockport Plaza restoration, and the Stockport College Town Centre Campus project. These are joined by the Point at Lancashire County Cricket Club, the new Patient Treatment Centre at the Christie, the People’s History Museum and 1 New York Street in Manchester city centre.

A final shortlist will be announced next month with the winning project being announced at the Section’s Annual Dinner at the Hilton Manchester on 14 October and the award will be presented by Sir Howard Bernstein.
