Heritage Panel: Second survey insights
In the latest half of 2020, we created and conducted the Culture Beyond Covid audience research in the shape of a free survey for organisations to get insight directly from their audiences and see what the bigger trends are across NI.
We have evolved this research into a second phase - our Culture Beyond Covid: Heritage Panel. The heritage panel will track audience’s views on returning to heritage as we continue to navigate through the pandemic this coming year. We’re out to find out what has changed for these audiences, what has stayed the same and what their attitudes are after the pandemic, right from the horse's mouth!
The second survey of the Heritage Panel ran from 3rd to 10th November 2021. You can download our report for a full overview of the results of the second survey. Scroll down for a short summary of the most interesting findings:
- 20% have not yet returned to indoor heritage. In comparison, our first survey indicated 26% had not yet returned back in August 2021. Are heritage audiences becoming more confident in visiting indoor places?
- People who have come back to indoor heritage are more likely to feel safe, compared to those who haven't.
- 1 in 4 are visiting outdoor heritage more often than before Covid.

The Heritage Panel is made of 146 heritage attenders in Northern Ireland who will be surveyed every two months until May 2022. Culture Beyond Covid for Heritage is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
