Heritage Open Days is England's largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,500 organisations, 5,000 events and 40,000 volunteers. Every September, places across the whole country throw open their doors to celebrate their local heritage, community and history.
The next Heritage Open Days Festival is 6 - 9 and 13 - 16 September 2018.
The hugely popular annual heritage festival sees thousands of local people exploring hidden gems right on their doorstep, all for FREE! From castles to city halls, tunnels to tower tops, workshops to woodland walks, the variety of places and ways to discover them are endless.
The Heritage Open Days programme in Norwich and across much of Norfolk is coordinated by The Forum with support from Norwich City Council and Norwich Tourist Information Centre. The programme is also delivered in partnership with Breckland Council, Broadland District Council, Thetford Town Council, Great Yarmouth Borough Council, South Norfolk Council, Visit North Norfolk and many local organisations and individuals.
