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 Heritage Open Days' programme in Norwich and Norfolk is coordinated by The Forum and this year takes place on Thursday 7 – Sunday 10 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.
