Parham’s Collection has been shortlisted for the Historic Houses inaugural Collections Award

We are thrilled to announce that we have been shortlisted for the Historic Houses inaugural Collections Award.

The Saloon, Parham House

The Award honours those who have collected, preserved, augmented, restored and interpreted the beautiful and significant objects within each collection.  Ben Cowell OBE, Director-General of Historic Houses, writes “This trophy will recognise the thought and effort that goes into caring for and interpreting the uniquely meaningful and precious contents of privately owned and independently run historic houses. The heritage these special places embody is much more than bricks and mortar; artworks and artefacts, treasures and trinkets accumulated over centuries of often unbroken family collecting tell a huge range of stories that echo beyond the four walls that contain these fascinating assemblages.”

The Judges are five leading experts in the worlds of curation and collections of both fine and decorative arts , and we’re looking forward very much to welcoming them to Parham later in the summer.
