Lincoln showcases heritage with open days

People in Lincoln can discover the hidden history of the city’s heritage venues as part of Lincolnshire’s Heritage Open Days 2014.

A number of events, many of which are free, are set be held in Lincoln and Lincolnshire from Thursday, September 11 to Sunday, September 14.

Beverley Gormley, Heritage Lincolnshire’s Cultural Events Officer said: “Year after year, Lincolnshire’s Heritage Open Days prove a real winner with local people and visitors as they provide free, unique opportunities to go behind the scenes of heritage venues and discover the region’s hidden histories.”

Each year the county’s Heritage Open Days have a different theme last year it was Material Matters and this year it will be Lincolnshire in the Great War.

The Cathedral will host an open day involving craft workshops for children as well as roof and tower tours for adults to enjoy.

Other venues for exhibits, talks and activities include the Museum of Lincolnshire Life, Ellis Windmill, The Priory Heritage Centre, Lincolnshire Archives and St Mary’s Guildhall.

Beverly added: “The events are a wonderful way of bringing people together to learn about their local history, enabling our local heritage venues, organisations, towns and villages to develop a lasting relationship with people in the area.”
