Heritage Open Days is England's largest festival of history and culture, bringing together local people, organisations, and thousands of volunteers. Every year, people come together across England to celebrate their heritage, community, and history.

The theme of this year’s event is ‘Astounding Inventions’, celebrating England's rich history of invention, industry and innovation.
