Heritage Open Days

Heritage Open Days 2021: 10-19 September 2021

10th Sept - 19th Sept

Heritage Open Days is England's largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,000 local people and organisations, and thousands of volunteers. Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE.

This year's theme is 'Edible England' and we have lots of things planned to celebrate it - downlad the event listing to see what you can do!

Some highlights include:

A talk by Dr Nicolette Perry on 'Nutraceuticals - Plants with Benefits'. You can attend the talk FREE of CHARGE on Saturday 18th Sept, at 11am. Collect your free ticket from Cogito Books. Space allowing, we will also admit ticketless attendees on the day.

Jane Torday' s warm and engaging talk 'Pop a Garden in Your Pocket' (also known as 'Power Plot') is available here on YouTube.

Edible Hexham, a self-guided walking tour by Transiton Tynedale. View the Edible Hxham Trail Map and Edible Hexham Recipes  on the Visit Hexham App.
