Heritage Treasures Day 2019 announced
An ancient site of worship; a stunning glass Victorian greenhouse; an iconic music venue; a museum celebrating design; a nature reserve full of native wildlife; an oral history recording of a precious memory; an incredible old train; or a tour led by an enthusiastic project volunteer – what is your favourite heritage, what does heritage mean to you, and do you have a most loved HLF-supported project?
To get involved share your #HeritageTreasures with us on social media using the hashtag on Friday 11 January. Let us know why you’ve chosen it, share a fab picture and take a look at what everyone else has picked. We will reshare our top posts.
“We don’t define heritage, we leave it to people to decide what they treasure and want to explore.”Ros Kerslake, HLF Chief Executive
The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) is the largest funder of heritage in the UK and since 1994 has awarded £7.9billion to over 43,000 projects using money raised through the National Lottery. Isn’t that amazing!
“For more than 20 years, HLF has been investing money raised by National Lottery players in heritage projects with people at their heart. We don’t define heritage, we leave it to people to decide what they treasure and want to explore, but we do insist that there has to be public benefit.” Ros Kerslake, HLF Chief Executive.
