Like many arts and heritage organisations, English Heritage closed its doors to all staffed sites in March this year and is only now beginning to reopen. As a new charity, with increasing reliance on visitor income this has had very serious impact on their ability to maintain progress towards financial sustainability. Nichola will discuss how the organisation has reacted to the pandemic to date and what challenges and opportunities EH perceives will remain in the post-Covid landscape.
Nichola Tasker is a conservation architect and Trustee of the SPAB. She is presently Stonehenge Director for English Heritage and until this year was their Head of National Projects.
