RAF Cosford wins award

RAF Kemp

Spandau Ballet singer and occasional daredevil pilot Martin Kemp was on hand to present a National Lottery Award to Royal Air Force Museum Cosford in September.

The museum was awarded ‘best heritage project’ for its First World War in the Air exhibition, which spans both its London and Cosford sites, and which garnered 7,000 votes from members of the public in the national search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects.

The display brings to life the compelling stories of the people, innovations, engineering and aircraft of the Great War. Over 65,000 people have visited the exhibition in the last six months. Martin Kemp said, “This is a fantastic project, and not just for aviation fans like me. It’s great that National Lottery players have helped to preserve these wonderful flying machines for so many young families and people of all ages to appreciate.”
