Heritage Open Days

Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,000 organisations, 5,500 events and 46,000 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 2023 will be 8th to 17th September.

To see the events being organised by the Society, have a look at our Eventbrite page here.

To find out what is happening elsewhere in the Wakefield district, or even further afield, you can search for events on the national Heritage Open Days website here.

And Wakefield Council’s Experience Wakefield website has a list of events happening across the District, some of which haven’t made it onto the national list. Check it out here.
