Welcome to Hertfordshire’s Year of Culture 2020 it is a year to showcase Hertfordshire as a county of creative and cultural opportunity. There are lots of events across the county which celebrate Hertfordshire’s arts, culture and heritage. Find out about all the events on the dedicated website called Creative Hertfordshire.

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.

Where Are The Best Christmas Lights In London 2023

London is one of the best cities in the world for Christmas Lights; you have iconic streets like Oxford Street, Regent Street and Carnaby Street, amongst many others. Plus, many smaller locations are less well-known and off the beaten track. But some of these places can be just as beautiful.
