They make Heritage Open Days England’s biggest voluntary cultural event.

Mission: Our mission is simple - To celebrate England’s fantastic history and culture by offering free access, every September, to places that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission. From castles to city halls, follies to factories, tunnels to tower tops, police cells to private homes, workshops to woodland walks, the variety of places and ways to discover them are endless. Heritage Open Days shows how all our stories have shaped the England that we know today.

Check out this short film featured during Heritage Open Days about the lives of Victorian Children who worked in Cornwall's mines.

And now selected for the 2020 Cornwall Film Festival!

Liskeard Unlocked: The Children's Strike

A short film about the untold story of the Children's Miners Strike of 1872. The short film gives a glimpse into the lives of Victorian children working in the mines around Liskeard and how their actions inspired modern day Liskeard children to take part in the Global School Strike for Climate Change 147 years later.

I'm proud to say it has been selected for the 2020 Cornwall Film Festival

www.mattthornhill.co.uk/liskeard-unlocked-the-childrens-strike/

This film was only made possible with funding from The Cornwall Heritage Trust Liskeard Town Council and Councillor Sally Hawken Cornwall Council

That’s all folks – 10 days of Heritage Open Days have come to an end.

It’s been an extraordinary year and there were times where we weren’t sure that the festival was going to happen, but we’re so glad and grateful that it did. Before we go we need to say a few thank yous to those who made it possible…

⭐To our organisers – the content creators, the event coordinators, the digital innovators. Your passion, dedication and ingenuity never ceases to inspire us.

⭐To our volunteers – the greeters, the explainers, the cups of tea makers. Your knowledge, kindness and commitment spreads joy no matter the circumstances.

⭐To our national supporters, players of People's Postcode Lottery – and our national coordinators, the National Trust. You enable our nationwide celebration to continue to survive and thrive.

⭐And finally to all of you – the day trippers, the eager listeners, the online engagers. Your enthusiasm, excitement and feedback makes it all worthwhile.

And that’s it – 1700+ events, 10 days, 1 festival. We can’t wait for you to join us again in what we hope will be a brighter 2021.

It’s the last day of this year’s festival 😢What’s been your highlight from the last 10 days?

Picked up a leaflet in Farnham on Green Spaces with HOD logo, which it is intended to continue after the event. Entertained me as I'd found SANG, socially assessable natural greenspaces, which had dropped the space to create the space. The President of the National Trust had a page in the magazine on wellbeing, greenways, and my local authority leaflets on exercise and mental wellbeing requiring access to parks and green spaces, so perhaps a chance to bring together activists organising socially accessible green spaces. I've found a bunch in my area but don't have Farnham's capability for posh leaflet.
Lots of free events from September 11th - 20th, some of which are on-line. (e.g. 7 on-line events in Cambs; 12 on-line events in East Yorks; 11 in Notts. and many more.) https://www.facebook.com/heritageopendays

For people living in North Somerset and wondering how to entertain the whole family, try 'Know Your Place'. Know Your Place is the free online mapping resource that is putting your neighbourhood’s heritage on the map. You can explore your neighbourhood’s heritage online through old maps, historic images and historical data and contribute to the published information yourself. To access the map and start exploring, head to www.kypwest.org.uk, click ‘Explore the map’ and scroll down to ‘North Somerset’. Find out more about the depth of history of your street or village, and explore historic maps going back further than 1840 to see when your house was built! Do you have any historic photos of places around North Somerset, or old family snaps that you’ve been meaning to sort through and would like to share? For parents with children at home, there is a downloadable Learning Pack, aimed at Key Stages 2, 3 and 4. This pack contains 6 themed lessons, each with a choice of activity that can be adapted, as well as case studies. It was developed in consultation with a range of teachers and group leaders: you can find the pack here:http://www.kypwest.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/831%20-%20KYP%20-%20Learning%20Pack%20(Digital).pdf The project is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Great Weston Heritage Action Zone. Our volunteers have been busy adding new information to the map, check out the ‘Community Layer’ and click on a green diamond to find out a little more about a particular place. Know Your Place is free and available to everyone, so why not take 5 minutes and explore the map, North Somerset’s history and heritage is waiting for you! You can also find out more on: Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/638416113618702/ Twitter https://twitter.com/KYPNorthSom
