Irish Heritage is a registered charity, established in London in 1974, whose object is to advance public education and appreciation of the arts, particularly those of Irish and Anglo-Irish music, arts, literature and drama of all genres and traditions to the benefit of the community.
The organisation delivers its charitable objectives through four ongoing programmes: collaborations with like-minded organisations, education including bursaries, events, and outreach and community activity.Join Us

While grants, donations, Gift Aid and the occasional legacy provide welcome and valuable income, it is the charity’s fundraising that is critical to its ongoing activities.
There currently are two important, annual fundraising events: the Irish Heritage City Dinner and the Irish Heritage Charity Golf Day. The former is held in February and the latter either at the beginning or end of the summer. Dates for the 2021/22 season are on the calendar of events.
The City Dinner takes place in a prestigious London location and is based on good food, good company and great entertainment provided by a selection of the charity’s bursary recipients.
The Golf Day usually takes place at an attractive and challenging golf course in the Home Counties, most recently at Batchworth Park in Hertfordshire to the north-west of London. The day finishes with a dinner at which the charity’s bursary recipients perform.
As a registered charity, support for Irish Heritage qualifies for corporation tax benefits as part of corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes.
If you would like to support either event and require further information about sponsorship and other opportunities please do so by contacting us.Fundraise with us
