After a stellar year in 2012, the Heritage Open Days team will be bringing their expertise to volunteers across the country with a series of free training forums, helping local people consider creative ways to bring their activities to life.

Sessions will run from 11am-4pm and will provide practical guidance on making your events more inclusive on a budget, interactive, hands-on activities with an expert accessibility practitioner and the opportunity to share ideas, questions and best practice. And there is a lunch!

There are three sessions:

14 March – Leeds Art Gallery

15 March – Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle
