The Award winning Enlightenment! project

This year the Enlightenment! project has picked up two awards. In May we won the Leadership Award at the East Midlands Heritage Awards, and earlier this month we won the Judge’s Special Award at the Derbyshire Heritage Awards at Barrow Hill Roundhouse.
Joy Hales said on behalf of the Derbyshire Heritage Awards Judges:
“This year we felt there was one outstanding project that could have fitted into all the award categories but its scope and realisation placed it beyond them all and has accomplished something of national significance. A partnership project between Buxton, Derby and Belper – Derbyshire should feel proud to have people with this scale of ambition to enhance the county’s collections through strategic acquisition in what we all know are difficult times. They had the vision to develop partnerships both within and outside the sector that will leave something of lasting significance. It is a real honour to present this to the Enlightenment team as a glowing testimony to an outstanding project”.
