Take part in our next social media moment by sharing a post with the #HeritageIsOpen hashtag on 21 June 2024.

Celebrate your heritage project and let people know about upcoming events, what they can visit, or when your project is opening. 

Our social media moments reach thousands of users and regularly trend in the top five so getting involved is a great way to acknowledge your grant and reach new audiences.

How to take part 

  • Share a social media post at 9am on Friday 21 June 2024
  • Feature information on your heritage project, summer events, openings and a great image.
  • Include #HeritageIsOpen and tag @HeritageFundUK
  • Use the social media platforms you like to use best. We will be prioritising Instagram, X and Facebook.  
  • Carry on using the hashtag throughout the summer to share highlights from your events and projects.

We love to get your heritage projects trending and spread positive news across the web. We will share and like your posts, and will keep sharing the fantastic heritage openings and happenings all summer alongside content from our own trips.  

As this year marks our 30th birthday, we will also be sharing projects from the last 30 years. If you would like to highlight an older project that is still open for the public to visit then please do take part.
