Hertfordshire Year of Culture 2020

HYOC2020 logoCulture is taking centre stage during 2020, as part of a year-long campaign to showcase Hertfordshire’s creative opportunities.

Hertfordshire Year of Culture 2020 (HYOC2020) will put the spotlight on arts, culture and heritage across the county and we want you involved.

So, whether you're an existing group already involved in culture, an individual artist, musician or dancer, a school or local group wanting to know how you can take part in a cultural activity, please join us to celebrate, share and enjoy Hertfordshire’s cultural offering.

Activities, special events and experiences will be taking place during 12 themed months that look to celebrate different types of art, share cultural experiences and explore our creative heritage. Months include promoting local museums and theatres, exploring the county’s culture in our towns and parks, encouraging you to try something new or get involved with volunteering.

So, no matter what art and culture means to you - there will be something for everyone.

Get involved

To find out more, visit the HYOC2020 website, where you can sign up to the mailing list for news and updates.

You can also download an activity form to let us know any plans that you have, and you'll be sent a Herts Year of Culture toolkit with the logo, information and resources to promote your event.

You can also follow HYOC2020 on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with the campaign as it develops.

HYOC2020 is supported by all 11 Hertfordshire local authorities. The Programme Board has additional representation from the University of Hertfordshire, Visit Herts and Trestle Theatre Company.
