National Heritage Week celebrates all things heritage related. It brings together communities and cultural institutions, academics and enthusiasts, to build awareness about the value of heritage and support its conservation.
Each year, during the last week of August, many national and hundreds of local community organisations participate by organising events throughout the country.
