NI Gold Award Presentations

Congratulations to everyone who was presented with their Gold Award Certificates at Hillsborough Castle on Thursday 25 May 2017. We were delighted that HRH The Duke of Edinburgh attended the presentation.

There is usually one Gold Award Presentation in Northern Ireland each year and this normally takes place at Hillsborough Castle.

On 1 April 2014 Historic Royal Palaces took responsibility for the management of Hillsborough Castle. In order to protect the fabric of the Castle numbers they must now limit the number of seats and the overall number of people permitted within each room.

Unfortunately, in order to accommodate the reduced numbers permitted by Hillsborough Castle, it will now only be possible for Gold Award recipients to bring one personal guest to future presentations.
