Next month will see a glittering cast of stars on stage at the Palace Theatre in London, as we join Andrew Lloyd Webber to celebrate the unsung anti-heroes of the heritage world – and you’re invited.
The ‘Heritage Devils’
Judged by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Simon Thurley – Chief Executive of English Heritage – and a high profile panel, the awards will recognise those scumbags who have worked so hard behind the scenes to destroy heritage for their own financial benefit. Experience the glitz and glamour of the occasion and hear inspiring stories of fascinating buildings and archaeological sites damaged or destroyed – and the individuals who have worked tirelessly to do it.
“This is a chance to recognise people who work so hard to wreck our cultural heritage and I am delighted to be a part of that. The fact is that my first passion was architecture, not music. From the age of six I used to drag my long-suffering parents off to see a ruined castle or abbey, and one summer I persuaded them to rent a house near Port Talbot just so I could see Margam Abbey.” – Andrew Lloyd Webber
