Year of History Heritage and Archaeology 2017 Signature Events Programme Fund – Guidance Notes

16 May 2016

2017 has been designated the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, a year that will celebrate our country’s unique history and heritage with a programme of activity aimed at supporting and driving the nation’s tourism and events sector.

Themed Years are designed to give Scottish tourism an edge, galvanise partners and create a strong collaborative platform to promote Scotland and its valuable attributes. The approach includes spotlighting existing activity and helping create new activity designed to meet the aims and objectives of the year. A Steering Group including representation from Creative Scotland, Heritage Lottery Fund, The Heritage Tourism Group, Highlands & Islands Enterprise, Historic Environment Scotland, Museums Galleries Scotland, National Trust for Scotland, Scottish Enterprise, Scottish Government, Scottish Tourism Alliance, Traditional Arts and Culture Scotland (TRACS), Built Environment Forum Scotland and VisitScotland has been formed to take the lead.

This events fund has been designed to create new, high profile opportunities to celebrate our history, heritage and archaeology, with a focus on adding value to the existing calendar of events.

Through this funding opportunity EventScotland is now seeking new, creative proposals that will provide a high profile signature programme, created especially for 2017. If your event is not eligible for this fund, other potential funding opportunities exist for 2017 events. More information is available here.
