Announcing Hello Heritage 2019!!

For the 3rd year running, from 7-22 September, 2019, people will be able to visit a wide variety of heritage sites, take part in walks and talks, and celebrate our rich cultural heritage. 

In 2018 over 1200 people visited 35 venues, events, talks, and walks across North West Leicestershire and South Derbyshire, all for free.  

After launching a successful Hello Heritage pilot in 2017, and seeing the festival grow even bigger in 2018, we are very pleased to be back again for 2019. 

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 come together to provide a varied collection of opportunities for you to visit, see, and experience. 

In 2019 we have seen 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.

Last year 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 again for 2019. 

Find out more about all the exciting heritage events that took place in 2018: Hello heritage leaflet 2018 (PDF Document, 0.68 Mb).

We will be producing the 2019 leaflet in early summer and uploading it here, so watch this space!

We are now accepting entries for 2019.

For more information, or if you would like to take part as a participant, please email Katherine Stanley: katherine.stanley@nwleicestershire.gov.uk

We welcome all heritage and cultural organisations to think creatively about how best to tell their stories, and show their wares. 

While you wait for September for the start of Hello Heritage you can whet your appetite and view 200 years of Coalville's history, by clicking on the Coalville heritage timeline.
