The SPAB Betjeman Award 2018

Share on:

There is still time to enter a project for SPAB’s 2018 Betjeman Award. The prestigious annual award reflects Sir John Betjeman’s love and appreciation of ecclesiastical architecture and is open to all faith buildings except cathedrals in England and Wales (including the Isle of Man). The poet and writer was a former committee member of the SPAB and the award was established to commemorate his long involvement with the Society and reflect his love of churches.

SPAB is now inviting entries to the 2018 John Betjeman Award. Repair work of any scale is eligible, but it must be to the fabric of the building (e.g. roof, tower, wall, floor, window) or to a significant item of fixed internal fitting or furnishing (e.g. screen, monument, tomb, pews, pulpit).  The work must have received appropriate approval (Faculty or equivalent permission / listed building consent) and have been completed within the previous 18 months. The closing date for entries is 20 February, 2018.
