Heritage Open Days (HODs) is England's biggest heritage festival celebrating our fantastic history, architecture and culture. Here in Norfolk, the local 2016 festival is bursting with over 200 hidden places and heritage events just waiting to be discovered between Thursday 8 – Sunday 11 September.
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, police cells to private homes, workshops to woodland walks, the variety of places and ways to discover them are endless.
This year’s HODs programme in Norwich and across Norfolk is being 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 District Council, Visit North Norfolk and many local organisations and individuals.
