England's largest festival of history and culture involves thousands of local volunteers and organisations. Every year in September it brings people together to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all completely free.
Here's a list of the venues in our area. It includes a miniature railway, an ancient abbey, a completely over-the-top museum (above), a number of stately homes which aren't usually open to the public, a picturesque folly, gardens, churches, a working Wurlitzer organ, eco-trails, workshops, a jail - and much more. Knowledgeable guides are on hand for many of the venues, to make your visit even more enjoyable. Some of the venues recommend or require advance booking - so move fast, and don't miss out!
