National Heritage Week 2021 will take place from Saturday, 14th – Sunday, 22nd August 2021. The Heritage Council will once again invite individuals, communities and organisations to develop Heritage Week projects, and the call for accepting National Heritage Week projects will open on Wednesday, 16th June 2021. There is no subject-specific theme for National Heritage Week 2021. Instead, project organisers are encouraged to consider how they can connect with ‘heritage newcomers’, who have not engaged with National Heritage Week before; groups or individuals who may not traditionally feel included in local heritage; and heritage enthusiasts of all ages, when planning their projects. The last day to submit a project to the National Heritage Week website will be Monday, 30th August 2021.
