National Heritage Week’s final weekend is right around the corner and features two themed days: Wild Child Day and Water Heritage Day with lots of activities for all to enjoy.

Wild Child Day takes place on Saturday, 19th August and offers a chance for the whole family to get involved in National Heritage Week. On Wild Child Day, we encourage children to look at the world around them differently, to open their eyes to the diverse beauty of the landscape in their area and to get out and explore their locality or even farther afield. Whether you have a budding historian, a future ecologist, or an inspired archaeologist at home, there’s an event for all young heritage enthusiasts to enjoy.

Water Heritage Day takes place on Sunday, 20st August in collaboration with the Local Authority Waters Programme. This is a chance to celebrate the heritage connected to our magnificent rivers, lakes, bogs and coastline. Each year, Heritage Officers, Community Water Officers and local communities and groups organise events and projects that highlight the value of water for recreational, cultural, environmental, and economic benefits.

Here are some of the events taking place for Wild Child Day and Water Heritage Day.
