York Trailblazers is an exciting and inclusive city-wide programme of events and activities across 2023 – 25, celebrating York’s heritage, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Trailblazers will inspire residents to discover and celebrate the history and heritage stories of people who are important to our local communities.
Working with partners across the city, and engaging with residents, schools and community groups, the Trailblazers project will reach out to all parts of the city.
The activities funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund will enable York Civic Trust, Make It York and partners to uncover lesser-known heritage stories of York through community workshops, a large-scale sculpture trail, community grant funding, partner events and marketing.
This project is possible thanks to National Lottery players.
