We are pleased to announce we are currently accepting nominations from members for our inaugural William Haywood Award.

The award honours William Haywood, a founding member of Birmingham Civic Society and one of the most influential leaders in the city during the early twentieth century. The award aims to celebrate people and projects who, like William Haywood, have had a dramatic and beneficial effect on the regeneration of the city.

The award with be considered bi-annually and will be awarded on the basis of a theme. The 2019 William Haywood Award will focus on “innovative regeneration” to mark the bicentenary of James Watt’s death.
