Love Worcester Heritage Festival 2019
17 February 2019 to 24 February 2019
This February, the Love Worcester Heritage Festival offers a series of events that showcase creativity, culture and innovation from the prehistoric to the 20th Century.
From live re-enactments and special exhibitions, to tours and the chance to get crafty, there are ample opportunities for new experiences during the ten day festival.
Over the past seven years, the festival has been made possible by bringing together the combined talents of local museums, churches and heritage venues around the city.
‘This incredible event has been growing in success and ambition over the past 7 years’ according to Tonia Collett, who is Chair of the Worcester Heritage Partnership. ‘By bringing all the heritage venues and historic buildings together, we can fully celebrate Worcester’s unique and world-class history, bringing it to life for everyone.’
The dates for Love Worcester 2019 are 14th – 24th February. You can find details of events via the Love Worcester Instagram and Twitter feeds (@LoveWorcs) as well as through Worcester Tourist Information Centre at The Guildhall. For more information email email@example.com.
