We are hosting a FREE Heritage Hub event on our campus on Saturday 23 March.

This exciting event will include traditional arts and crafts, campus heritage trails, historical re-enactments and hands-on activities for all ages. Representatives from many local heritage organisations and community groups will be on-hand to bring the region’s history and heritage to life. Discover new places to visit and find out how you can get involved with activities on your doorstep, including archaeology, family history, museum programmes, wellbeing activities and much more besides. There will be careers advice for those looking to enter the heritage and cultural sectors, as well as signposting to volunteering opportunities. 

All are welcome.
