2014 marks a special year for us at Heritage Open Days as we gear up to celebrate our 20th birthday! Our manager Katja has already told you a bit about our early history on our blog, and now we want to hear your Heritage Open Days story. We would love to hear your favourite memories from the early days of our scheme. From our organisers and volunteers to our visitors young and old, we wouldn't have made it here without you!

Were you involved in Heritage Open Days in 1994? Get in touch! Have you enjoyed attending Heritage Open Days events throughout the years and have some great memories or photos we could use as a part of our celebration? Drop us a line! Please email us with any stories you'd like to share and help us make this a birthday to remember.

Birthday celebrations

We are working on campaign ideas and resources that you can use for your local event to make the most of this special anniversary cycle. In July we will be unveiling a new page on our website dedicated to our 20th birthday featuring stories, multimedia, and more so you can join in on the party. We will also be celebrating in style late this summer with those who have helped to make Heritage Open Days the event that it is today. Get in touch and stay tuned for more updates about our big year!
