Annual Heritage Open Days Festival - 11-19 September

Annual Heritage Open Days Festival - 11-19 September

Over the next week, Huddersfield town centre will be a hive of history-inspired activity for the annual Heritage Open Days festival!

The festival is a national event aimed at celebrating our fantastic history and culture and every activity is free to take part in.

This year, many local activities are being put on as part of the Huddersfield High Street Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ) Cultural Programme – run by the Huddersfield HSHAZ Consortium in partnership with Kirklees Council and Historic England. You might have already heard of the Huddersfield HSHAZ because the project is also focusing on the renovation of two key sites – the George Hotel and Estate Buildings – both of which are beautiful listed buildings on St. George’s Square.

There will be around 30 activities delivered by the HSHAZ Consortium for the festival, all of which are centred around St. George’s Square.

To see the full list of events please visit the website below.

As well as these events in Huddersfield, there are a wealth of opportunities to get involved and find out more about heritage right across Kirklees – and nationally. Wherever you live, find events in your local area on the Heritage Open Days website
