Enfield Council has received £250,000 in grant funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to deliver the ‘Untold Edmonton’ programme.
The programme will fund 2 festivals, a volunteering programme and up to 20 community heritage projects exploring Edmonton’s rich and diverse history. The project will be guided by a community steering committee.
The programme is running from September 2022 until November 2024.
Edmonton heritage festivals
From 17 September 2022 to 7 October 2022, this free festival includes events, walks, talks and workshops exploring Edmonton’s past, present and future. A second bigger festival will occur in the autumn of 2024 to include everything that has been learnt over the project.
From November 2022 to November 2024, we are offering a heritage skills volunteering programme with opportunities to learn archive management, exhibition creation and delivery, event management, heritage site guiding and more.
Throughout the duration of the Untold Edmonton programme, we will make sure that Edmonton has a thriving cultural life through a regular events programme in local libraries including talks on recent acquisitions to the museum, poetry readings, object handling sessions and much more.
Heritage project funding
From November 2022 to November 2024, we will be awarding funding to community organisations in Edmonton to explore elements of the area's heritage and history, from its ancient past to the present day.
