THE restoration of the Osmington White Horse is in line for a major award.
The Osmington White Horse Restoration Group is one of the finalists in the English Heritage Angel Awards backed by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The heritage heroes who helped restore the white horse are heading to the Palace Theatre in London’s West End next Monday where a film telling the story of their rescue projects will be shown at the live final of the awards.
Backed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, the Angel Awards celebrate the efforts of groups and individuals from all over the country who put hours of hard work perseverance and imagination into saving derelict and severely damaged historic landmarks from being lost forever.
In total there are 17 on the shortlist, all of whom have been filmed by award-winning filmmaker Dictynna Hood or Likely Story.
OnMonday, the films will be shown to a packed audience of heritage officials and enthusiasts before guest celebrities are invited to open a golden envelope, announce a winner and present one of the five Angel Awards up for grabs.
Andrew Lloyd Webber himself will be presenting an award, along with author and historian Bettany Hughes, “Restoration Man” George Clarke, and Richard Chartres, Bishop of London.
Paul Martin, the TV presenter known to millions from the BBC’s “Flog It” and other programmes, will be hosting the show and introducing celebrities to present the awards.
