Sheffield Heritage Open Days
11 - 20 September 2020
Update on the current situation with Heritage Open Days 2020
The national body which runs the Heritage Open Days festival (the National Trust) are determined that the HODs festival should go ahead in some form in September, dependent of course on the situation we are in by then regarding venue closures and social distancing etc.
This might mean that the festival goes ahead as normal, or that it goes ahead in a different format, and various different options are currently being looked at by the national team.
Your local Sheffield HODs team are still working hard to prepare for the festival going ahead in some format and so if you are able to continue your planning and registration that will help us in the preparations we are currently making for the printing and publication of our popular local brochure.
We realise that some of you will be extra busy right now whilst others may have a little more spare time, so it might be a good time to be giving some thought to planning your HODs event.
By continuing to plan and prepare we will all be ready if the festival goes ahead, and if some events are not able to happen then our preparation will stand us all in good stead for next year.
The Organisers’ Toolkit is new for 2020 and has been prepared by your local team to help guide you through the HODs process from registration right through to the event. Please do read it as it covers many of the questions we are frequently asked, for example about logins and registration, risk assessments and insurance. Dates and deadlines shown are currently correct but are subject to change and we will update and recirculate the toolkit if the information in it changes. You can also download it from our local website
As always, your local team are here to support you so don’t hesitate to contact at firstname.lastname@example.org if there’s anything we can help you with.
