Norfolk’s stunning and often hidden heritage is back in the spotlight, with the launch of this year’s Heritage Open Days brochure, featuring over 200 free events across the county.
Co-ordinated by Norwich’s Heritage Economic and Regeneration Trust (HEART), the bumper brochure launched yesterday details 208 free events including guided tours, walks, open buildings, exhibitions and performances which will take place during Heritage Open Days (HODs) – England’s largest and most popular voluntary cultural event, taking place in Norwich and across Norfolk from Thursday 12th to Sunday 15th September.
The free brochure includes events in Broadland, Great Yarmouth, Norwich, South Norfolk, Thetford and further afield. It is available in cultural venues, tourist information centres, libraries, post offices, cafés and shops across Norfolk and copies can be posted out free of charge – send requests to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01603 305575. The events are also on www.heritagecity.org/hods where personalised itineraries can be created and email booking is available for prebookable events in Norwich, Broadland and South Norfolk.
New and highlight events for this year include: Norwich Cathedral Medieval Graffiti tour; Marston Marsh & Eaton Common walk; talks, demonstrations and activities on Medieval monastic life at St Benet’s Abbey; Blickling Hall Mausoleum; Great Yarmouth Potteries, and bell ringing demonstrations at St. Peter’s Church, Thetford. Plus Barford in South Norfolk goes HODs crazy with local history displays, concerts, heritage tours, open churches and a historic shepherd’s hut.
