‘Derek Acorah Annual Mediumship Award’
There was an unprecedented interest in last year’s Derek Acorah Annual Mediumship Award. We are inundated with questions about how the 2022 award will work. This article should clarify the situation. Barrie John and Gwen Acorah feel the award should be for the benefit for up and coming mediums. Nationally recognised mediums or those who already benefit from large stage audiences are not the focus of attention.
The award is, without doubt, prestigious. After all, Derek was an internationally recognised medium. Therefore, whoever wins the prize must attain a very high standard. Anyone who takes part will have to evidence their ability. In the initial introduction, send in information about how long you/they have worked as a medium, where and with who are essential criteria for selection for the event.
For this year, not only can Visitors nominate mediums, but people can also put themselves forward. As mentioned, nominations must include a synopsis of your work and previous experience. Providing this information is essential, as the information will be used to select the 10 people who will go forward to the live assessments during The November Pure Spirit Show.
So, applications for this year’s show are simple and straightforward. Use the contact form at the bottom of the page and send in the application or nomination. Those who are accepted will be expected to attend one of the days of November’s Pure Spirit Show (we will send out the allocated time and day one month before the show). Many gifted people can take part in this event and maybe become a star in the making. The demonstrations are held at the:
Pure Spirit Mind Body Spirit Show
19 + 20 November
Lady Eastwood Centre
Newark Show Ground
The award will allow the winner to prove they have attained the highest mediumistic standard and benefit for many years after being awarded the accolade. There is no doubting the award will become a yardstick of attainment.
Another aspect of the award is finalists will have their place on the Pure Spirit Events page. This means visitors to the site can contact them for the following year and have priority places if they wish to stand at any Pure Spirit Show. The winner has secured reader places on all Wellbeing and MBS shows organised by LizianEvents Ltd. They will also stand without charge at Pure Spirit Shows. Plus, they receive an outstanding trophy.
