The Marsh Awards

Every year the Marsh Christian Trust recognises some of the outstanding contributions made by volunteers of The Arts Society in the field of heritage conservation and arts education.

This national award scheme is an 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.

In spring each year, we invite our Society Committees to put forward individuals or groups of volunteers who are supporting arts education or heritage conservation or serving on a Society Committee who have gone the extra mile to make a difference to a local organisation or to their members and deserve consideration for a special award.  

The awards are announced in the summer, with a special ceremony held later in the year.

Volunteer with The Arts Society

There are different ways in which you can take part in volunteering with us ranging from helping to run one of our Societies to taking part in projects involving arts and heritage in the local community.

In order to be covered by our insurance, our volunteers are required to become members of The Arts Society. This can either be a member of a local Arts Society or as a Supporter Member. 

In order to find out where your nearest Society is please visit or if you do not want to join a Society, details of our Supporter Membership can be found at
