Norwich Heart, Heritage Economic & Regeneration Trust

Norwich Heritage, Economic & Regeneration Trust



A private, charitable company that strategically plans, regenerates, manages and promotes Norwich and Norfolk's heritage.


HEART to pass on the baton after 10 successful years


After over 10 years of championing the city's heritage, HEART hands on its many legacies, such as the Norwich 12 iconic buildings, which will continue through the work of partner organisations.

Following a strategic review, which considered the challenging economic climate for charities and the decline of funding streams, it has been decided that the trust's legacies can be delivered in other ways through the following partner organisations:

  • Heritage Open Days - The Forum Trust
  • Norwich 12 - Norfolk Museums Service
  • Norwich Dragon Festival - The Forum Trust
  • The Guildhall and cafe, Colman's Mustard Shop & Museum - Guildhall Enterprises - operated by Britannia Enterprises
  • Norwich Ambassadors Scheme - Visit Norwich
  • Archive Alive and HistOracle - University of East Anglia

The material in the Research Centre will be passed to VisitNorwich for incorporation/use in their website so that it remains available to the public. Authors should contact

The trustees will explore how conservation and heritage-led economic progress in Norwich can continue to be coordinated and driven forward in the future. The trustees can be contacted regarding heritage coordination on
