New bespoke Cumbria Tourism Awards

We are thrilled to announce that Chris Brammall have been commissioned to create a brand new, bespoke metal award for the 2015 Cumbria Tourism Awards.

The new Cumbria Tourism Awards, like much of Chris’s work, are inspired by the mountains and valleys of the Lake District and will be individually hand-crafted in steel with ribbons of copper.

The final design will be revealed for the first time to the 15 Cumbria Tourism Award winners announced at the Castle Green Hotel in Kendal on Tuesday 16th June.  The new awards will create a beautiful work of art which the winners will be proud to display in their reception areas and ticket offices for many years to come.
