Award winning month at the Charterhouse


March got underway to a successful start at the Association for Cultural Enterprises Annual Conference. Two of the Charterhouse publications were shortlisted in the ‘Best General Publication’ and ‘Best Guidebook’ categories in the Best Product Awards 2018.

Our Museum and Collections Manager Ellie was in Brighton for the conference and had an opportunity to view the competing entries. Our books were up against publications from the Sir John Soane Museum and the Wellcome Collection. Following some friendly rivalry with our competitors the winners were announced. The Charterhouse was awarded ‘Best Guidebook’ for The Charterhouse: The Guidebook. Congratulations to the Sir John Soane Museum who were awarded ‘Best General Publication’.

The success continued at the UK Heritage Awards which were hosted at Goldsmith’s Hall on 6 March. At this ceremony attended by Development Director Dominic Tickell and Governor Wilf Weeks the Charterhouse was the winner in the ‘Best Hidden Gem’ category. Congratulations to Bridge End Gardens in Suffolk which received a commendation in the same category.
