Hertfordshire 2020 Year of Culture

Lots of the events I create this year will be under the umbrella of Hertfordshire Year of Culture, you will see the events with the logo on. Another aim is for people to try something new, to increase wellbeing and a sense of belonging through the arts, culture and heritage. Another important aspect is through education, showing them what is available through the creative industries in Hertfordshire.

There are different themes each month, not everything will fit into those categories but definitely check out the Creative Hertfordshire website for a lot more events throughout the year. You might even spot YOCI the mascot for the year of culture.
