May 26, 2016
1,000 heritage professionals, volunteers and supporters from across Europe gathered this past Tuesday at the highly regarded Zarzuela Theatre in Madrid to celebrate the EU Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards, where seven Grand Prix laureates were announced alongside the Public Choice Award. The restoration of Wimpole Gothic Tower was named as one of the winners of the €10,000 prize, which marks the 16th Europa Nostra Award (including commendations) for a Donald Insall Associates project.
Plácido Domingo, President of Europa Nostra, said: “At a time when the European Union is confronted with many political, economic and social challenges, this initiative has a very special meaning. Cultural heritage, indeed, connects people across generations and across borders, generates economic growth and fosters social inclusion.”
