The annual celebration began in 2014 with a handful of activities and has grown each year to cover a variety of events and promotional activities. There are many ways to get involved from hosting an event to promoting your work and sporting collections online all with support from Sporting Heritage CIC.
National Sporting Heritage Day can help your organisation find new audiences, celebrate your sporting pioneers, and inspire a new generation. The public can get involved by attending an event in their area or by engaging with #NSHD2021 and exploring sports heritage online.
This year’s theme is ‘Inspire, Share and Celebrate’ and will focus on inter-generational activities and learning; using sporting heritage collections and stories to encourage conversations across generations and support young people to learn about the sporting pioneers that came before them.
We can help you to organise, fund and publicise your event. Please follow the link below to our step-by-step guide and learn how you can get involved this year.
Alternatively, you can find all this information together in our National Sporting Heritage Day 2021 Resource Pack available to download below.
