Heritage Awards Success!!

I am very pleased to announce here that the John Player project has won the Regional Heritage Award for Collections Care and Development.  The ceremony was held at Kelham Hall, Newark last Thursday evening.  It really does show how much we’ve achieved with such a large collection.  We have strived to develop the collection and make it more accessible through this website, the sessions with participants who worked at Player’s, the short film we have made and the work that our volunteers have done. 

Thank you to everyone involved, especially Maria Erskine keeper of Social History, Andrew Newnham John Player’s Advertising Archive Collection Development Assistant and Ann Inscker, Collections Manager.  All the volunteers involved in work on the collection and all the participants in the Player’s Past and Tailormade sessions whose input really helped us to fully understand and appreciate the social importance of John Player’s in Nottingham.
