Celebrating, preserving and promoting Iran’s rich heritage.

For the past 30 years, the Iran Heritage Foundation has proudly supported Iranian culture, history and language, so both the Iranian community & the whole world can be enriched by them.

Iran is one of the oldest civilisations in the world, and it has a priceless wealth of knowledge, philosophies, science, art, traditions and skills gained over 5000 years. And it’s still evolving today.

The IHF’s partnerships, initiatives, events and contributions have deepened the world’s understanding and appreciation of Iran’s remarkable heritage.

We believe the wonder, beauty and lessons held within Iranian traditions are a uniquely relevant gift for everyone to enjoy. That’s why we welcome you to experience them with us, ready to share with our thriving community and to pass on to the next generation.

We are a non-political, non-religious UK registered Charity, and the funding we receive & provide gives vital support to education and events, so our vibrant culture can be lived and experienced by this generation, and many generations to come.
