Forres Connected – Culture & Heritage

FACT has joined up with Forres Heritage Trust and other interested organisations, groups, businesses and individuals to bring a package of heritage projects to Forres after securing £20K in funding from the UK Government through the UK Shared prosperity Fund.

The pilot initiative called Forres Connected-Culture and Heritage will bring a programme of activities including guided walks and tours, talks, traditional entertainment events, and tailor-made activity packages for day and longer stay visitors, to name but a few of the plans, from April to September 2024.

A new leaflet has also been produced which highlights just some of the exciting events taking place in Forres over the next few months and puts a spotlight on a map of the town’s many heritage landmarks.

The groups currently involved in the project are: Highland Youth Theatre, Leanchoil Trust, Findhorn Bay Arts, St John’s Church, Film Forres, Friends of the Falconer Museum, Forres Area Business Association, Forres Area Tourism Network, HA HA (Helen Avenell Heritage Associates) and individuals who are involved in local events such as the Forres Highland Games, Grant Park 100 and the British Pipe Band Championships and Forres Local.

The funding has also allowed us to create a Heritage Information Hub in Forres Town Hall. Opening times, Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm.

For further information on the various activities and developments or how to get involved please go to the Forres Connected-Culture and Heritage Facebook Page, alternatively email us at or pop in to speak to one of our lovely Volunteers at the Heritage Information Hub.
