English Heritage have announced that they will be running the annual Heritage Open Days event. The future of Heritage Open Days had been under threat since the Civic Trust in England had been placed in administration. However Steven Bee said that
English Heritage can reassure all those who like to take part in Heritage Open Days that it will happen this and every year – and we look forward to an excellent weekend of events on the 10th-13th September. Heritage Open Days is an important cultural event and we are very grateful for the continued support of all the volunteers across England, on which the success of the event depends.
More than 3,500 historic and unusual buildings across England are opened to the public for free and tours and events are put on over the second weekend in September.
