Gloucestershire Heritage Hub

Want to get involved in heritage?

On Saturday 3rd June we are holding our first ever heritage focus day at the Gloucestershire Heritage Hub.  This event is aimed at people wanting a career in heritage as well as those interested in a less formal arrangement, for example, volunteering. 

10am - 4pm. All ages and abilities are welcome.

Heritage Hub, Clarence Row, Alvin Street, Gloucester, GL1 3DW

Keynote speaker

Nick Barratt, linked to the BBC Series ‘Who Do You Think You Are?  He will be giving a talk entitled ‘Why heritage matters’.  

This event is an excellent opportunity to see what archivists, conservators, museum curators, librarians, archaeologists and other heritage based professionals do on a day to day basis. Come and chat with us and learn about training paths and roles.  There will also be ‘have a go’ opportunities, demonstrations, films and a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of Gloucestershire Archives.

Further information including the schedule for the day will be available here shortly. At that stage, we recommend that you book on for the talks, as space is limited in the Dunrossil Centre. In the meantime, here is a taster of who will be there.
