Heritage Week 2022

National Heritage Week

Heritage Week 13th - 21st August 2022

National Heritage Week, an initiative by the Heritage Council, celebrates all things heritage. It brings together communities, families, organisations, cultural institutions, academics and enthusiasts, to build awareness about the value of heritage and support its conservation. This year, we are celebrating the full return of in-person events as well as continuing with digital heritage projects which attracted so many new people to National Heritage Week over the last two years. The overarching theme for National Heritage Week 2022 is sustainability and organisers are asked to consider sustainable heritage in all its forms. Organisers are also invited to explore biodiversity through events and / or projects. All events and projects that meet the objectives of National Heritage Week in a meaningful way will be promoted on the National Heritage Week website.

Here in Tipperary we have a wonderful array of events for Heritage Week 2022 for you to enjoy, there are a selection listed below but keep an eye on the Heritage Week website for up to date information on events taking place.
