Hat-trick of awards for Royal Air Force Museum
Frances Galvan Head of Retail for the Museum with the awards.

LONDON.- The Royal Air Force Museum announced that it has recently won 3 awards at the Association for Cultural Enterprises Conference.

The awards recognise ingenuity and best commercial practice within the Heritage Sector.

The RAF 100th Anniversary T-Shirt won the Best Product for a business with a turnover more than £1m.

Clothing has always been popular with visitors to both of the museum's sites, but this amazing T-shirt which pictures various RAF aircraft flying dramatically out of the RAF roundel was judged to be “incredibly visually appealing with a 3D innovative design” as the judges commented.

London’s Souvenir Guide Book won the Best Guide Book for a business with a turnover more than £1m.

The Museum’s third win of the evening was for Best Children’s Product for a business with a turnover of more than £1m for our Royal Air Force 100th Anniversary Pilot Bear.

This cute and fluffy bear has a very strong message conveying the story of the RAF to young visitors. Its uniform details and colour have been developed using Museum expertise and as with all the Collector Bears the foot is embroidered with a very special year in the history of the RAF, its Centenary year. According to the judges, this product offered ‘Fantastic quality and strong messaging. A special bear of pedigree and a perfect way to celebrate the centenary with children.’

Commenting about her trio of wins, Frances Galvan Head of Retail for the Museum stated: ‘This is quite an achievement and I am very proud as there was very stiff competition in all categories. I would like to give a huge “Thank You and Well Done” to my entire team without whose hard work and ingenuity we would not have been able to get these products developed or sold in such huge quantities. The profit from each product sold helps us maintain our wonderful collections. So, it is imperative that we develop products that reflect the stories contained within our collections and that our visitors wish to buy.”

If you would like to support the Museum further you may purchase one of the award-winning products at our London and Cosford shops or online.
