Award winners announced!

Sam Vaux with the award


We were very excited this morning as staff returned triumphant from The Mersey Partnership’s Annual Tourism Awards with some great news.

National Museums Liverpool won Tourism Experience of the Year and Marketing Project of the Year – both for the fantastic Art in the Age of Steam exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery last summer.

We were also pleased that the Lady Lever Art Gallery shop was ‘highly commended’ for Tourism Retailer of the year. 

More than 520 guests joined the celebrations to recognise and reward the best of the best during a black tie dinner at the BT Convention Centre on Liverpool’s UNESCO world heritage waterfront.

You can see Marketing Officer Sam Vaux (above) with the award for Marketing Project of the Year, which was presented to her by Ranvir Singh from BBC North West Tonight.

Update: As Art in the Age of Steam at the Walker won ‘Tourism Experience of the Year’, this means we’re now automatically finalists in the England’s Northwest Tourism Awards that will be held in September at Blackpool Tower. If we’re successful there, we could be entered for the Enjoy England Excellence Awards!
