Booking is now open for The Heritage Alliance’s 2017 Heritage Debate ‘Is heritage good for your health?’ which will be held at the Waldorf Hotel’s Palm Court. The Heritage Alliance likes to think that heritage is good for people’s wellbeing and health, and evidence is starting to be available to back this up. Heritage participation can improve mental and physical health, and the historic environment can provide an attractive backdrop to physical activity (as shown by the increase in Parkrun-type events). This debate will not so much challenge these statements, as ask how the heritage sector can better build bridges with the world of public health. What claims can realistically be made for the health benefits of heritage, and where does heritage best intersect with the public health needs of the nation?
Bookings before the 22nd of September will receive the reduced early booking rates of £8 for members, £12 for students, and £16 for non members.
