ANGUS Council’s economic development unit will hold a pilot Angus Heritage Week from September 7 to 14.
This new event is planned in association with the annual Doors Open Days which provide free access to unusual and interesting buildings throughout Angus, some of which are normally closed to the public. The purpose of Angus Heritage Week is to promote the unique built, cultural and natural heritage of Angus.
Angus is home to many heritage and cultural venues and Angus Heritage Week will be an ideal platform to promote these venues and associated events to both the local community and visitors. Angus Council is keen to encourage as many local venues and organisations as possible to participate. All events during the week will be featured in the event programme and online. The programme will be distributed locally and to accommodation providers and visitor attractions within a 90-minute drive of Angus.
Angus Heritage Week has been partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund, through a Rural Tourism Business Support Project which aims to deliver an innovative, collaborative, partnership approach to improving tourism products in the East of Scotland.
Any person or organisation interested in taking part is invited to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Closing date for responses is June 29. Further information is available from 01307 473262.
