In March 2020 we said ‘how can we help’? In May 2021, we were honoured to be selected for an M+H Award for Covid Supplier of the Year. Find out more about why we won here!


We are


Tricolor Associates are heritage and cultural consultants focusing on effecting change through cultural regeneration. We specialise in developing and delivering projects for the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council, Inspiring Science Fund, London Borough of Culture and others like the Towns Fund and UK City of Culture.


We are


At Tricolor Associates, we want to work with organisations that are driven by forward-looking people who are listening deeply to their audiences to develop products and services that meet a need and innovate as a matter of course.


We are


Tricolor Associates believe that places can be made better by listening to the people within them. As master planners and regeneration specialists, we put people first and inspire them to think bigger. We are place-makers. And we know that it is the people who make the place.


We are


Tricolor Associates want to change our society, our country and how we view ourselves through our past. We are National Lottery Heritage Fund consultants providing full-service support for project management, business planning, evaluation, resilience building, activity plans, consultation, interpretation and visitor experience design.


We are


Tricolor Associates help visitor attractions make complex subjects engaging. We provide audience development planning, engagement and interpretation both onsite and via digital channels. We can provide STEM-based learning plans and volunteer development, but most important of all, we get excited by helping people to access new knowledge and experiences.


We are


Tricolor Associates balance the future alongside our history, focusing on what makes a positive difference to the people yet to come, celebrating our planet and our culture and learning from our past.


We are


Tricolor Associates believe culture makes better places and better people. We believe in challenging people's experiences and widening our world-view, whether that's through sharing individual stories or a 1000-person performance. We believe in the power of culture to make great places and empower people to be great too.

Here to Help

In these difficult times Tricolor Associates are doing what we do best – putting people first. We have been offering free of charge Zoom or telephone support sessions in response to the coronavirus outbreak and will continue to do so for as long as heritage, culture and community organisations need it. Contact us to arrange a chat.


What do we do

Tricolor Associates are a team of expert heritage consultants. We work with clients who want to use heritage and culture to bring positive change to people and communities. We work with museums, charities, trusts and local authorities and help them develop plans that have lasting social impact. 

We are National Lottery Heritage Fund specialists and have helped clients secure over £130m from the Fund. Our highly experienced Tricolor team will work with you to develop a compelling application to NLHF and other funders, from the Expression of Interest, Funding Application, Business Plan, Activity Plan / Activity Statement and Interpretation Plan / Interpretation Statement.  Our proven research and consultation approach ensures that all our clients’ proposals respond to local need and market demand. We can work with you through each stage of your National Lottery Heritage Fund, or other funder, relationship.

The Covid-19 Crisis

We know that this period has put enormous pressure on organisations. Whilst millions have been invested by funders including National Lottery Heritage Fund, it is also a time where many organisations are at their lowest capacity ever.

As experienced heritage consultants, Tricolor specialise in project development, fundraising, project management, business planning, digital and people-led engagement and we can help your project and organisation through these very challenging times. Please contact us for a chat about how we can help.
