Castle wins Special Award


Castle wins Spirit of the Awards at Cornwall Heritage Awards Ceremony

The Spirit of the Awards Winner!

We are thrilled to announce that the Castle Heritage Centre won a special award at the Cornwall Heritage Awards, which recently took place at the Royal Cornwall Museum. The ‘Spirit of the Awards’ is awarded by judges to an organisation that they feel most encapsulates the spirit of the Cornwall Heritage awards: a commitment to excellence in heritage, environmental sustainability and inclusion. The Castle was also highly commended in the Collaboration and Object of the Year categories. The Castle was judged against other larger museums in Cornwall and the award was accepted at the ceremony by Heritage Development Officer, Janine King. You can view the awards here (our winning speech is 49 minutes in!)

Well done to Janine for her hard work and drive and her team of volunteers who effortlessly give their time to help the community and support The Castle!
