This sixth Heritage Alliance Heritage Debate will explore the role the state plays in protecting and promoting our heritage, an outstanding asset for the UK at home and abroad.

Over the past five years, the heritage sector has built up a solid basis of research and analysis on which Government, businesses, owners and communities can base their investment and management decisions. The benefits to government, communities and individuals are well-documented but caring for our heritage becomes ever more challenging with responsibilities split across public, commercial, private and community interests. Who picks up the tab for the ‘common good’ and how can Government support owners and others to take on more responsibility for our heritage is the urgent question at the beginning of this new administration.

After the Debate, the audience may be invited to support the Alliance’s call for a Government statement on the value of our heritage to provide a shared vision and sense of belonging for all parts of society.

Registration from 6.00pm
Debate + Q&A 6.30 – 8.00pm
Reception 8.00 – 9.30pm

This event is free but registration is essential.

This is sixth Heritage Alliance Heritage Debate sponsored by Ecclesiastical Insurance. It is held in partnership with the Bartlett School of Planning (University College London) which hosts the Place Alliance.
