World Heritage Exhibition at Brockhole – ‘Evolving Masterpiece’

12 April 2017

Brockhole, the Lake District Visitor Centre will host an exclusive World Heritage interactive exhibition wall from Easter onwards, leading up to the announcement of potential inscription as a World Heritage site in the summer. 

The exhibition itself will be an evolving piece, taking inspiration from digital and cultural strands interwoven with a celebratory theme pending the successful inscription. A selection of content chosen for the exhibition focuses on story telling of the Lake District through different experiential elements such as video, social content streams, inspirational photography and also key local case studies.

Over the course of the Lake District World Heritage campaign, digital content has reached over 9 million people with over 12,000 people officially backing the bid online. There have also been over 10,000 visitors to World Heritage based activity stands at Lake District shows and festivals in 2016/17.

The brand new World Heritage feature at Brockhole will further boost these engagement figures and allow visitors to the attraction over the key spring and summer season, to find out more about what inscription from UNESCO could mean for our beautiful National Park. We will find out whether the Lake District nomination has been successful in July 2017.

The new exhibition is open every day between 10.00am and 6.00pm. Plan your visit to Brockhole by car, bus, boat or on foot! – visit the website for details.
