What is Hello Heritage?
It’s a fun FREE fortnight for all the family to enjoy. This year the festival runs from 2 September through until 17 September.
Hello Heritage is a celebration of the heritage and rich culture within and across North West Leicestershire. Heritage sites and groups have come together to provide a varied collection of opportunities for you to visit, see, and experience. A number of sites will be open and there will be tours and guided walks available as well as the popular board trails Heritage on your doorstep 2023 around many villages. You can still access our taster films to find out stories of some of our wonderful sites.
We have come a long way from our original pilot in 2017 and are proud to have received a nomination for Best Free Festival at the Leicestershire Tourism and Hospitality Awards in 2018. Hello Heritage continues to go from strength to strength.
We hope that you enjoy visiting your local area and experiencing the wonderful heritage we have all around us. Enjoy your days out and let us know what you discovered.
We are very grateful to of all the local organisations and volunteers who make this fabulous event possible. They are true custodians of our heritage.
