“[The Auckland Project's]  achievements since philanthropist Jonathan Ruffer decided to invest in Bishop Auckland have been extraordinary. This year saw the opening of the latest attraction, the country’s first Faith Museum, following The Spanish Gallery and Mining Art Gallery.” – The Journal, Nov 2023.

The winners of the North East Culture Awards will be revealed on December 13, during a ceremony hosted at The Fire Station in Sunderland. The event is held in partnership with Sunderland City Council and the University of Sunderland, reflecting a collaborative effort to celebrate the region's diverse cultural contributions.

Chris Connel, the host for the evening, will oversee the announcement of the winners, adding an extra layer of excitement to the ceremony at Sunderland's vibrant new music and theatre venue, The Fire Station.

The Heritage Award nomination is a testament to The Auckland Project's dedication to preserving and promoting cultural heritage, making a lasting impact on the community and the broader North East region.
