Heritage Open Days: Join the Celebration!
Strike a Light is taking part this year on Thursday 11th September at Fabrica in Brighton.
It’s all free so come and join in!
|Towers and tunnels, factories and follies, chapels and synagogues – thousands of England’s most unique and undiscovered historic sites will be throwing open their doors for free in September, as Heritage Open Days celebrates its 20th anniversary.
“2014 is a landmark year for Heritage Open Days,” says Loyd Grossman, Patron of Heritage Open Days and Chairman of the Heritage Alliance. “Over the last two decades we’ve enabled millions of people to visit thousands of places that are normally closed to the public, helping to put local heritage at the forefront of community life throughout England. This summer we’re looking forward to our most spectacular festival ever – a unique national celebration that brings our hidden history to life.”
The four-day festival promises a more diverse array of events than ever before, ranging from 1950s tea-dances to Elizabethan garden parties. Join guided walks, visit secret archives, discover hidden works of art – or simply pack a picnic and soak up the sunshine in a garden of your choice.
