Sheffield Civic Trust is delighted that Civic Voice will be part of the consortium responsible for taking forward Heritage Open Days from 2012 onwards. This is a welcome return for Heritage Open Days to the civic movement from which it sprang.
Working with the National Trust and the Heritage Alliance, Civic Voice will be responsible for the national co-ordination of Heritage Open Days and securing its future. English Heritage will provide funding till 2015 and it remains responsible for Heritage Open Days in 2011.
Civic Voice’s main role will be to develop and deliver a strong, independent and sustainable future for Heritage Open Days after English Heritage’s support comes to an end. The National Trust will employ the three person Heritage Open Days team and The Heritage Alliance will provide their direct management.
