Heritage Show + Tell is a chance for people passionate about heritage in Yorkshire to come together and share their work, get feedback on ideas and meet new collaborators. Everyone welcome: community heritage groups, freelancers, museum professionals, archivists, students and academics.

The next Heritage Show + Tell will be hosted by Leeds Museums and Galleries on Thursday 2 July 2015. Join us for a taster of the new Leeds History of Medicine Trail at 4pm (starting from the Parkinson Steps, University of Leeds), followed by Heritage Show + Tell at Leeds City Museum from 5pm to 7pm. There will also be a chance to see a new exhibition, The Imaginary Museum: Monuments and Landmarks, as part of the event.
