Traditional Hertfordshire was a partnership project involving 6 Hertfordshire museums and organisations. Staff and volunteers from each one researched the traditions and stories which contribute to the unique culture of their area.
Over 20,000 visitors attended exhibitions, workshops and events, learning about the county's sense of place. This has provided a springboard for further research - from proposed post graduate courses at the University of Hertfordshire, to key elements of Hertfordshire’s upcoming Year of Culture 2020, Traditional Hertfordshire demonstrates the power of folk history and heritage to capture imaginations and evoke the past.
The project was funded by an Our Heritage Grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, SHARE Museums East, and supported by the county council's Museums Development Team.
