Open the door and let the public explore at Heritage Open Days
Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of history and culture and offers people the chance to discover hidden places and buildings on their doorstep.
This year Heritage Open Days take place over two weekends for the first time, September 6 to 9 and 13 to 16, offering those taking part a wider choice of when to open and visitors a greater variety of places and experiences to enjoy. The main theme of this year’s event is extraordinary women.
We would like to invite organisations and venues with a story to tell to throw open their doors and be part of this year’s celebrations.
As you may know Lancaster is a city of Heritage and has lots of unique heritage to offer. In recent years, venues around Lancaster and Morecambe Bay have invited visitors to discover a secret garden, visit a Masonic temple, have a ‘Brief Encounter’ at Carnforth Station, be ‘sent down’ to the town hall’s underground cells, dress up as WW1 soldiers, play Georgian games and go in search of a Lost Observatory.
