Celebrate, Share and Explore Hertfordshire’s arts, culture and heritage

Also known as HYOC2020, Hertfordshire Year of Culture 2020 is a year to showcase Hertfordshire as a county of creative and cultural opportunity.

Monthly Themes

The year is split into 12 themed months which the event programme will be built around:

January – Try Something New
February – Skills Development and Volunteering
March – Access the Arts Go
April – Go Somewhere Local
May – The Big Outdoors
June – Big Ideas
July – Cultural Olympiad
August – Families and Friends
September – Heritage and History / Meet the Maker
October – Be Inspired / Get Back Into
November – Creative Minds and Creative Industries
December – Celebrate and Illuminate

Would you like to take part?

Ideally activities should tie in with the themed months above, but the idea of HYOC is to promote cultural activities that take place any time in the year. The months exist to provide the year with some structure and allow us to focus our marketing activities.
