100 Event Ideas for Heritage Week 2018

Do you want to organise a Heritage Week event this August?  Join over 1,200 other event organisers in sharing and celebrating Ireland's cultural, built and natural heritage!

Heritage Week will take place from 18-26 August 2018 is a highlight of Ireland’s celebration of the European Year of Cultural Heritage. This initiative by the European Commission and coordinated in Ireland by the Heritage Council aims to involve all citizens in events that help to deepen the connection between people and heritage.

We are exploring this theme by asking you to 'Share A Story, Make A Connection'. It is your chance to share heritage stories in new ways, with new people. Everyone from young people to new arrivals to Ireland to retired people can get involved and share your stories. We want everyone to have the chance to connect with their heritage; to enjoy, appreciate and share it.

What to get involved as an event organiser? Take a look at this list of 100 event ideas to spark your imagination!

Event registration is open from 1 May 2018.

Registration for the printed event guide will close on 31 May while event registration for the website listings will remain open until August. The printed event guide is distributed across Ireland to OPW sites, museums, libraries, local authorities, selected hotels and tourist offices.  Your event will also be included in a county event guide where available.
