***The Five-Series Visit (1 visit free!) ***

If a Heritage Expert visits the same school five times, for either five full days or five half days, during the calendar year, the school will pay for four visits and the Heritage Council will fund the fifth. If you are interested in participating in this scheme please discuss with the Expert you have chosen and state this on the booking form when filling it in.
