Online Event Explores Long-term Resilience of Historic Buildings in Commercial Use

The event takes place Tuesday 9 February 2021, 10am to 12:30 pm. It is free to join but with limited places.

Historic England and East of England Regional Historic Environment Forum are delighted to offer an online webinar exploring how the Heritage Sector can innovate, plan and explore long-term resilience now and post- COVID-19. It is especially relevant to groups and organisations owning historic buildings- or business owners of historic buildings that have commercial uses- to see how they can access support for building their long-term resilience.

Speakers will present a wide range of case studies, discussing how historic buildings can not only provide unique economic benefits to a local area, but also creative solutions to current issues.

Speakers will include representatives from

  • Historic England
  • The New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership
  • Arts Council England
  • Architectural Heritage Fund
  • Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust
  • National Lottery Heritage Fund

-and many more.

As well as presentations on the virtual 'main stage' you will have the opportunity to join breakout sessions based on your preferred subjects.
