Unsung Stories

Here at Heritage Open Days we champion the fact that history belongs to all of us.  Whatever age, race, religion or sexuality, heritage both helps define and create who we are, and what we want to be. This year – thanks to new funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery – we’re able to shine a light on four tragic, beautiful and fascinating personal histories from the LGBTQ community.

This year, more than ever before, Heritage Open Days is telling #allourstories.

Do you have a story to tell?

Alongside these special arts commissions there will be a wealth of other events across the country over Heritage Open Days (7-10 September) and we'd love to shine a light on more LGBTQ stories. There's still time to register an event for the festival so if you have a story to tell, a place to share then we would love to hear from you. Find out more about getting involved on our organising pages.
