Our Events

At The Heritage Alliance, we are proud to facilitate a programme of exclusive events for our members, including webinars, training courses, networking and peer group sessions, roundtables, talks, and panel events – both virtual and in-person. Our member-only events facilitate engagement between our members, the wider heritage community, and specialists in various related fields. Some of our recent events for members include:

  • Training courses for heritage organisations that want to reduce their carbon footprint
  • A talk from the UK Paranormal Society on how heritage organisations can tap into ‘paranormal tourism’
  • An expert-led webinar on how heritage properties can make savings on energy bills

Beyond our member events, we regularly host open events that welcome heritage professionals, volunteers, and anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of the sector and making valuable connections. Our members are often to access special discounts on ticket prices for these events.

  • Every November, we host an exciting Heritage Debate – a lively panel discussion that tackles a pressing current issue within the heritage sector. Past topics have included how to build sustainable heritage careers, what the ‘levelling up’ agenda means for heritage, and how the sector can engage with more diverse audiences.
  • Our flagship annual event is the Heritage Day Conference, which presents a unique opportunity for the heritage community to come together, celebrate its achievements, and learn about the latest insights, challenges, and opportunities. Attendees come from a diverse range of backgrounds: heritage sector professionals, but also representatives from charities, businesses, research organisations, and government departments. The conference aims to inspire conversations and connections to propel the sector forward.

Funding for the core costs of our events programme comes from membership subscriptions and donations, through Historic England’s grant schemes, and through the generosity of external corporate sponsors. Ecclesiastical Insurance is our core organisational sponsor.
