Middleport Pottery wins prestigious European Union prize for Cultural Heritage!

We are thrilled to announce that Middleport Pottery has won Europe’s most prestigious award for Conservation.

It is a great affirmation of the vision of our client The Prince’s Regeneration Trust and the work of our project team.

“This year’s winners are powerful examples of creativity and innovation at work for Europe’s cultural heritage. They also demonstrate that heritage matters to Europe and its citizens”  Plácido Domingo, President of Europa Nostra. The Pottery was one of only two UK projects given an award.

The Europa Nostra Awards Ceremony will take place on 11 June at the Oslo City Hall where seven of the selected winners will be named as Grand Prix laureates, receiving €10,000 each, and one will receive the Public Choice Award, chosen in an online poll conducted by Europa Nostra.
