Things To Do This February Half Term

It's almost February Half Term and as ever, it’s a juggling act – you’ll need something to entertain the kids but don’t want to spend a fortune or travel too far doing it. Therefore we’ve put together a list of some of the best things going on locally. With most things running all week, you should find something to do here but if not, you can find a list of everything happening day by day here, on our What's On page.

Hertfordshire Year of Culture 2020

Hertfordshire Year of Culture 2020 is a year to showcase Hertfordshire as a county of creative and cultural opportunity. The campaign is being led by the Hertfordshire Association of Cultural Officers (HACO) and are encouraging organisations and individuals from across the sector to get involved. The objective is to celebrate, share and explore Hertfordshire's arts, culture and heritage by enabling access and participation in arts, culture and heritage for new audiences and showcasing pathways to education, employment and enterprise in creative and cultural industries.

Anyone can get involved. You could be a Parish or Town Council, leisure provider, lunch club leader, arts venue, dance group leader, music teacher, University of the Third Age Group (U3A), Rotary Club, group of mums or just a group of friends. You could be someone who runs a group that has no link to arts, culture or heritage but would like to encourage your group to try new activities throughout the year. Or you may be someone who provides creative and cultural opportunities who can promote what you offer under the HYOC2020 umbrella to encourage new people to join your activity.

The year is split into 12 monthly themes:

  • January - Try Something New
  • February - Workforce Development and Volunteering
  • March - Access the Arts
  • 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

This is a great opportunity for local businesses and organisations. If you would like to find out more about Hertfordshire 2020 Year of Culture, contact the Project Co-ordinator Liz Gore on 020 8207 7801 or by email: [email protected]
