Welcome to the Wirksworth Heritage Centre website

Wirksworth Heritage Centre has received initial support* from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for their Recreation and Renaissance project. 

The project aims to carry out essential conservation work and run a series of events, exhibitions and workshops to enable the Wirksworth community to get involved.  With an emphasis on widening their appeal to both young and old, WHC will be actively encouraging local people to get involved in every stage of the development, from managing and handling archives and artefacts to digitising collections, from helping to create exhibitions to running group and school visits, there will be something for everyone to get involved with – no experience necessary as full training will be available for anyone interested.


Wirksworth Heritage Centre has received initial support* from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for their Recreation and Renaissance project, it was announced today.  Development funding of £120,000 has been awarded to help Wirksworth Heritage Centre (WHC) progress their plans to relocate, recreate and develop a more accessible Museum and Community Heritage Centre at a new site on St. Johns Street in Wirksworth.

Have Your Say On The Future Of WIRKSWORTH HERITAGE CENTRE

Wirksworth Heritage Centre are calling for local people to complete an online survey and input in to their future plans.

The survey can be accessed at www.whcsurvey.com.  It gives people the chance to actively shape the content, programs and experiences that the new organisation will deliver in the future.  There is a prize of £100 in vouchers to spend in the town for one lucky person who completes it.  


 

Group Guided Walks and School visits are still welcome and we use the town itself as a virtual museum for our workshops. If you wish to book a Group or School visit please call Lucy Godfrey on 07802 725862 or email lucy.godfrey@wirksworthheritagecentre.org
