We are now working on our programme for 2020!
We are very hopeful that by September, Covid-19 will be at a stage where we can once again leave our homes and enjoy the wonderful heritage that our area has to offer. We have again linked with South Derbyshire District Council who is busy working with heritage organisations in their area to make this an even bigger festival.
Are you part of a heritage organisation or group and would like to take part in 2020?
Take a look at the programme below to see what it is all about.
Hello Heritage 2019 Programme (PDF Document, 1.91 Mb)
For the 3rd year running, from 7-22 September 2019, people were able to visit a wide variety of heritage sites, take part in walks and talks, and celebrate our rich cultural heritage, all for free!
What is Hello Heritage?
It’s a fun free fortnight for all the family to enjoy.
Hello Heritage is a celebration of the heritage and rich culture within and across both North West Leicestershire and South Derbyshire. Heritage sites and groups are coming together to provide a varied collection of opportunities for you to visit, see, and experience.
In 2019 we saw the project grow from its original pilot in 2017. Receiving a nomination for Best Free Festival at the Leicestershire Tourism and Hospitality Awards in 2018, Hello Heritage stands to go from strength to strength.
2019 saw more venues, one-off events, walks, talks, and the development of some innovative new partnerships, including the participation of venues in South Derbyshire who have been working with us to grow the offerings available.
While you wait for Hello Heritage 2020 you can whet your appetite and view 200 years of Coalville's history, by clicking on the Coalville heritage timeline.
