The Heritage Foundation encompasses Comic Heritage, Sports Heritage and Films & TV Heritage. The main aim of the foundation is to combine paying tribute to Britain's wealth of talent who have brought pleasure and joy to millions through their performances or technical skills with raising funds for good causes through their charity "The Arts & Entertainment Charitable Trust."
Fund raising events include erecting permanent memorials in the shape of Blue Plaques, staging tribute evenings, luncheons & concerts. In addition, they also honour today's talent whether on stage, TV, radio or in films, in performance, production or scriptwriting, they are acknowleged and celebrated at the Heritage's highly prized annual Awards Luncheon at a star studded gala ceremoney held in June each year.
