Corinium Museum is a finalist in 2013 VisitEngland Awards for Excellence

“We were delighted to hear we have reached the finals of such a prestigious awards event, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we will be the overall winners in our category on the night."
Isobel Milne, Commercial Services Manager

Cirencester’s Corinium Museum has been named as a finalist in the Small Visitor Attraction of the Year category of the prestigious VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2013.

As a finalist the Museum now goes forward to the glittering Awards Ceremony which is being held on 20 May 2013 at The Point, Lancashire County Cricket Club, Old Trafford, Manchester.

The Corinium will have to wait until then to find out how they will fare.  All finalists are guaranteed to receive either  a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Highly Commended Award.

Commenting on the finalists James Berresford, VisitEngland’s Chief Executive said:
“I would like to congratulate all those nominated as VisitEngland Awards for Excellence finalists this year.  We received 320 applications and the quality of submissions was higher than ever.  It is therefore no small achievement for the Corinium Museum to become a finalist and they can justifiably take credit and pride in earning a coveted place in the top five in their category in England. 
I wish everyone all the best for the final in May”.

The museum’s Commercial Services manager Isobel Milne said:
“We were delighted to hear we have reached the finals of such a prestigious awards event, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we will be the overall winners in our category on the night.  We pride ourselves on providing an excellent visitor experience and it is always great to receive this sort of public endorsement of the museum’s work.”

The Curator of the Corinium, Amanda Hart, was also very pleased:
“My team at the Corinium always strive to go the extra mile with a smile on their faces, and we are often complimented on our ability to provide such a wide range of events and attractions for the public. I am sure we will have a great chance of going for gold at the VisitEngland final ceremony. I would also like to commend the CDC visitor information centres at Moreton-in-Marsh and at the museum itself – both were pipped narrowly at the post in the ‘Visitor Information Provider of the Year’ category of the same awards, and they will be bidding to go one better next year.”
