Heritage Show + Tell is a chance for people passionate about heritage in Yorkshire to come together and share their work, get feedback on ideas and meet new collaborators.

The next Heritage Show + Tell will be hosted by the brand new Experience Barnsley, the first ever Barnsley Museum which opened at the end of June. Join us for a tour of the new museum at 4pm. We will then kick off Heritage Show + Tell at 5pm.
