We were delighted to sponsor the Spirit of the Awards category at the recent Cornwall Heritage Awards 2024 at Kresen Kernow. 

Representatives of the World Heritage Site team chose organisations they felt most demonstrated an outstanding commitment to our core values of environmental sustainability and inclusion. Our decisions were aided by two expert judges: Kathy Moore - Director of the Climate Museum UK (Environmental Sustainability) and Sophie Meyer - Engagement Manager at Cornwall Heritage Trust and Director of Queer Kernow (Inclusion).

The award is split into two subcategories, one for larger organisations and one for smaller organisations.

The winner of the award for large organisations was Archives and Cornish Studies Service at Kresen Kernow with commendations awarded to Wheal Martyn and Penlee House Gallery & Museum.  

The winner of the award for smaller organisations was Mevagissey Museum with commendations awarded to Saltash Heritage and St Ives Museum.

Congratulations to all of the winners! 
…and a big thank you to everyone who organised and participated in the Cornwall Heritage Awards 2024


The Cornwall Heritage Awards are a collaboration between Cornwall Museums Partnership and South West Museum Development. Since 2018, they have brought together the very best projects, collaborations, initiatives and teams from organisations across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly for the Cornwall Heritage Awards. The awards celebrate the positive impact of museum and heritage organisations have on climate, social justice, communities, local economies, wellbeing and those who work in the museum and heritage sector.
