The Whitworth by Alan Williams

The Whitworth has won the Best Emerging Culture Destination, Europe prize in the Leading Cultural Destinations awards.

Our ‘gallery in the park’ has won a host of awards since it re-opened in February following a £15 million refurbishment.

These awards were shortlisted following nomination of venues and are judged by an international panel.

Gallery director Maria Balshaw said: “It’s very nice to win something that we didn’t even apply for.  And we were the only UK institution in the Europe category, with some stellar competition!”
