Marsh Awards 2022 Open for Nominations!

21 Dec 2021

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting nominations for The Marsh Awards 2022!

This national award scheme is an exciting opportunity to acknowledge the dedication of those actively engaged with Arts Volunteering, Heritage Volunteering, Trails of Discovery, or running a Society who give the extra effort that makes a difference.  

'During such a difficult time for so many people, we are pleased to once again be working with the Arts Society to recognise volunteers across societies both in the UK and internationally who are committed to helping to conserve and promote the decorative and fine arts in their local communities. Since the Awards were first presented in 2013, we have been able to celebrate the work of a great range of volunteers, and this year we have been able to recognise those who have gone above and beyond to promote the work of the Arts Society and keep members engaged during this time of separation. I would like to pass on my congratulations to this year’s winners and thank them for their commitment and contributions'

- Brian Marsh OBE Chairman of the Marsh Charitable Trust
