Heritage Open Day 2024

Enjoy free entry for all to Rufford Old Hall on Saturday 7 September 2024.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

Open from 10.30am-4.30pm, explore the magnificent Tudor house, enjoy delectable delights in the Victorian tea-room and wander around the beautiful grounds.

Throughout the day we will also be joined by Red Rose Woodturning Club who will be demonstrating the art and craft of using hand-held tools on a wood lathe, turning a piece of wood into an object. They’ll also be the chance to purchase some of these wonderful handcrafted pieces created by members of the Red Rose Woodturning Club, in the Courtyard here at Rufford Old Hall.

In September, the garden and woodland will be starting to show its autumnal colours. Take a walk through the woodland and along the canal, relax in the Courtyard and formal gardens or take the little ones to burn off some energy on a balance bike, available to borrow from the Coach House.
