Heritage Open Days returns next month and the West Midlands are involved!

More than 4500 venues, activities and events will welcome visitors next month as England’s largest festival of history and culture, Heritage Open Days, returns. Organised by the National Trust, supported by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery and run by thousands of local organisations and volunteers, Heritage Open Days gives the public free access to hidden places and new experiences.

The free event takes place 9-18th September.
