Neville Burston Prize

This year's Neville Burston Prize for Art was awarded to George who recreated part of the British museum.

Adjudicator OH Alex Chamberlin (Druries 1968) said George's artwork "showed real care and a passion for what you do".

Alex Chamberlin was commissioned by the Army to produce an oil painting of the 100-year-old veteran Captain Sir Thomas Moore, who raised over £32 million for NHS charities. Alexander unveiled the portrait in August 2020, and it was hung in the National Army Museum in London as part of commemorations to mark the 75th anniversary of VJ Day.

The Neville Burston Prize is a prestigious award made annually to an Upper Sixth artist who has produced outstanding work in their final year at Harrow.

Neville Burston OH (Moretons 1942–1946) also bequeathed Fine Art painting prizes to Goldsmith’s College and the Royal College of Art.
