Winners of the Marsh Award 2015 Regional Award for the South West of England

In September 2015, our team of Archive & Library Volunteers had their hard work recognised when they became the regional winners of the Marsh Award for the South West of England.

This exciting award recognises the hugely valuable contribution that volunteer make in helping museums engage with their visitors and in 2015 over 50 museums and galleries from around the UK entered. Four of our volunteers are pictured at the Award ceremony at the British Museum with our Director.
