We are delighted to be bringing you an exciting Hello Heritage this year that contains a number of guided walks and open events. From a visit to a medieval garden to seeing a piece of embroidered artwork showing the heritage buidlings of Thringstone, we really have lots on offer for our two-week  celebration of NWLeicestershire heritage.  You can find out about industrial heritage in Swannington and the life of Mount St Bernard Abbey.  Remember, it is all FREE. Many venues will be serving tea and cake to round off a perfect day out.  Here is the full programme of what's on offer this year.

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 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 for you to visit and there will be tours and guided walks available as well as the popular board trails 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 the local organisations and volunteers who make this possible. They are true custodians of our heritage.
