Berwick Heritage Open Days

Posted · Add Comment

This year Heritage Open Days (HODS) will take place in England between 9 and 18th September inclusive and the general theme is “Astounding Inventions”. I’m not sure how we will fit into that at the moment and so, if anyone has any ideas, do let me know.

Berwick HODS will run over the whole period but we will concentrate most of our in person events over the weekend 16th to 18th September. As we have done over the last few years, we will also have some quizzes on our website and will run a series of online talks leading up to our main weekend. This will allow those who can’t actually visit Berwick an opportunity to take part as well.

This year, we have been chosen to take part in the National “New Wave“ initiative which is a programme to help us engage with young people, particularly in the 18 to 25 age bracket. A member of our Steering Group is attending the online training and we will either organise an event suggested by this age group or help them to run one. We are still in the early stages of working on this but look out for further details nearer the time. Only 7 groups have been given the chance to take part and so this is great for Berwick. At the moment, we are still working on our programme. Once it is ready, we will publicise it locally. However, in the meantime, if you know any local buildings or events which would like to be part of Berwick HODS, please do get in touch. Also, if you would like to help us in any way – volunteering over the weekend or getting involved in the organisation of the event- please do get in touch –
