Heritage Now

Heritage Now is a six-week placement programme with the Wicksteed Park Community and Heritage Team. The placement is a flexible programme that can be tailored to your interests and skills taking place one day a week over six weeks.

During the placement you will have the opportunity to learn about heritage archives and gain practical experience in a heritage setting from cataloguing and digitising archive materials to setting up and promoting exhibitions. You can also use our archives to research a topic/theme of your choice and create a project relating to Wicksteed Park with the help of our team.

Wicksteed Charitable Trust

The Wicksteed Charitable Trust receives no regular external funding to help maintain the park as a truly unique, freely accessible public space. You can help to preserve the park for future generations by making donations. All money raised is used to help maintain the park and its grounds.
