Marsh Awards for Heritage Crafts

The Marsh Awards for Heritage Crafts are run in partnership with the Heritage Craft Association.

These awards recognise and celebrate the exceptional individuals that contribute so much to our rich living heritage. The awards have been created to encourage the passing on of skills from one generation to another and to acknowledge the great work that volunteers do to raise the profile of heritage crafts across the UK.

Applications are processed on an on-going basis and you will usually hear from us within 3 months. Sometimes due to the volume of applications we may take a little longer to respond, but it won’t be much longer than that.

As stated in the guidelines, the application requirements are a cover letter and a copy of the most recent reports and accounts. We believe that the application requirements reflect the size of our grants and therefore there is no complicated application form to complete.  The size of the grants awarded range from £250 to £4000.  Applicants are welcome to request a specific sum, but should take into consideration the grants available and remember that new applications will start at the lower end of the scale.  The application should be one to two sides of A4, plus the full reports and accounts.
