Heritage Open Days 2020

Heritage Open Days 2020 Heritage Open Days (HOD's) is England's largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,000 organisations, 5,000 events and 40,000 volunteers. Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It's your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences - and it's all FREE.

Heritage Open Days - Friday 11 to Sunday 20 September 2020

This year's optional national theme celebrates 'Hidden Nature' and is a marvellous opportunity to go outdoors and explore our extraordinary natural heritage. For more information visit www.heritageopendays.org.uk As a Council we recognise the importance and value that HOD's brings to the communities of Sunderland. The event gives an opportunity for us to throw open the doors of venues to celebrate our city's rich heritage offer. Following discussion with our local authority partners across the region regarding the position we find ourselves in this year, the Council's Heritage Team will play a supporting role to organisations who are thinking of participating in activity during HOD's which takes place from 11 - 20 September 2020. We are reviewing how best to continue in a supporting role for Heritage Open Days and look forward to working with you in preparation for 2021.
