​We’re starting off the New Year by celebrating the UK's rich and diverse heritage – and we want you to get involved.

Join us on Tuesday 11 January 2022 to mark #HeritageTreasures day. It's a social media moment set up by us to celebrate fantastic heritage projects of all kinds that we have supported over the years across the UK.

Whatever your heritage treasures are, take part in the online conversation on the day. Some ideas could include:

  • an inspiring collection item
  • a local park you visited throughout the pandemic
  • the animals you see in your garden
  • a highlight museum
  • a heritage story that is important to you or your organisation

Perhaps you have enjoyed or created an innovative online heritage programme, you might want to simply say thank you to your heritage staff and volunteers, or you might want to shout about your project funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
