We don’t half win awards! From the Tourism Event Award for Vintage by the Sea and Best New Festival for The Vintage Festival, to scooping the top prize at the Oscars of housing design, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) North East Renaissance Awards, our creativity is recognised on a national and international stage.
