This year’s Heritage Open Days will run from 9th to 18th September
The European-wide festival of history and culture called Heritage Open Days (HODs) is co-ordinated nationally by the National Trust and held over ten days in September each year. The events in Cheltenham – are organised by Cheltenham Civic Society.
Visit, explore and learn
These events range from open buildings – which you can explore either on your own or on an organised tour – to guided walks, talks, exhibitions or even a visit to a hidden gem that usually isn’t open to the public.
This year’s theme of ‘Astounding Inventions’ aims to celebrate our rich history of invention, industry and innovation.
The events are all run by volunteers, who meet regularly during the year to plan the programme and produce a brochure, which features all the activities and open buildings. Our HODs team will be working to highlight local inventors and showcase cutting edge innovations that have helped to change our world.
CALL TO ACTION: If you would like to be involved with the organisation, please contact Sarah Harvey on firstname.lastname@example.org
