Be inspired by the opportunities in our heritage that can make places of worship (and other places) more appealing, engaging and sustainable. By sharing the experiences of others, find out how to turn your heritage into an opportunity rather than a burden, and be inspired to see far beyond traditional exhibitions and events to tell your stories and reveal your treasures in exciting new ways.
Discover that, whatever the scale and nature of your place of worship, we all face similar challenges and that there is a wealth of experience, expertise and (free!) resources to help you address them.


Keynote speaker is Loyd Grossman CBE FSA, the conference is organised by Durham Cathedral and Inspired Futures, and there is an opportunity for advice on your project from Heritage Lottery Fund staff.


The programme is here: and booking is here:

Tickets are priced at 15 per person and include refreshments, a light lunch and access to the Open Treasure exhibition.  


We look forward to seeing you there!


Best wishes
