Hosted by Kev Johns MBE, more than 450 guests packed into Swansea’s Brangwyn Hall with members of the public voting in each of the 17 categories.

This follows on the Egypt Centre winning a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) back in June for their tireless work in the community.

The Centre – based at Swansea University’s Singleton Campus - holds the largest collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts in Wales with over 5,000 objects and its volunteer group consists of over 100 members.

Syd Howells, Egypt Centre Museum Volunteer Manager said:

“Winning the award was a complete surprise to us! Everyone at the Egypt Centre are thrilled by the recognition this award gives to our museum, as well as its volunteers and staff for the hard work we put in to bring ancient Egypt alive to the wider public.”
