Heritage Open Days 2017 returns to the Broads National Park for a 4-day festival this September!

Heritage Open Days 2017 brings family fun to the Broads National Park this September between the 7th and 10th September 2017. Each September, over 2000 volunteers organise events for Heritage Open Days in their area – and all of the events are free! England’s favourite heritage festival, Heritage Open Days 2017 is perfect for history and culture lovers as well as families and visitors to the area who want to learn more about their holiday destination! The Broads is full of both history and culture, so there’s plenty to get involved with over the 4-day festival.

Some highlights from across the four days including the Family History for Families in Acle on the 9th September 2017. With drop-in sessions between 10:15am and 11:45am, families can create their own family crest and start to trace their family history. Another one not to miss is the Beccles Town Council Chambers tours. Not usually open to the public, this event on the 8th September between 10.00am and 2:00pm gives visitors the chance to see the private chambers and meet the Mayor of Beccles. Wherry Yacht NORADA will be visiting the Museum of the Broads, next door to our marina in Stalham, between the 9th and 10th of September, 10.00am until 2:00pm each day. In Loddon, explore Raveningham Hall on the 8th and 9th of September 2017 on tours at 11.00am, 2:00pm and 4:00pm, given by owner Sir Nicholas Bacon. Another one not to miss is the free drop-in talks in Norwich Castle’s museum and gallery on arms and armour, as well as life in the castle, on the 9th September 2017 between 10:00am and 4:30pm.

There’s lots more events in the area that are great for everyone, from families to couples. You can see more Heritage Open Days 2017 website.
