Welcome ...

Welcome to The Heritage Foundation – The World of Entertainment working for a World of Good Causes.

The Heritage Foundation evolved from Comic Heritage founded in 1994 to its current form at the turn of the millennium. Its aim is to pay tribute to Britain’s wealth of talent who have either brought or continue to bring pleasure and joy to millions of people worldwide, through their performances or technical skills in entertainment and sport. This is accomplished by holding a number of commemorative events throughout the year while simultaneously raising money for good causes through our charity ‘The Arts and Entertainment Charitable Trust’. These events include erecting permanent memorials, tribute luncheons and dinners and concerts. We could not achieve our objectives without the continued support of a large number of people from the world of show business and all of you out there who so generously contribute to our work by way of attending our events or making donations for which we are most grateful.
