Ulster Architectural Heritage is delighted to announce that Heritage Angel Awards Northern Ireland will launch online on 27th April at 7pm! We are once again supported by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation and Department of Communities to celebrate achievement for the promotion, preservation and protection of heritage in 2021. The launch will mark the opening of the opportunity to apply for heritage angel awards or nominate your heritage angels.
The Awards seek to celebrate the efforts of people who go to extraordinary lengths to protect, save and share their local heritage. They also recognise those who champion heritage by sharing and practising forgotten craft skills. In addition they celebrate young people, recognising their efforts to learn about heritage.
The launch will be hosted by Wendy Austin, with special guests, singer/songwriters Brigid O’Neill, Anthony Toner and poet Maria McManus. With performances of bespoke pieces from previous Angel Award ceremonies based on the built heritage and history of Belfast, Derry~Londonderry and Armagh.At the launch, this years categories will be revealed, and the application and nomination portal declared open. The launch will be followed, over the April-May period by a series of Angel Awards Information Events.
