Heritage Open Days
Free to explore | Thursday 7th – Sunday 10th September 2017
Across England Heritage Open Days events are organised to celebrate history, architecture and culture; to provide an opportunity to see hidden places, hear intriguing stories, savour new experiences, and all FREE to explore.
This year’s Sheffield Heritage Open Days covers over 100 entries – the biggest and most diverse programme yet. We celebrate our industrial past with three crucible works and more, our library heritage with talks and tours at the Central Library and many of our volunteer- led community libraries, two small local theatres and a music hall walk, and a variety of faith buildings across the city. Do you know who Nicholas Saunderson* is? Find out from Andy Platt at Regather or Mary Ann Rawson see her grave at Zion Graveyard and walk through Attercliffe with Mike Higginbottom. There are so many fascinating stories to tell and hear.
