Sheffield Civic Trust and Sheffield Heritage Open Days

Heritage Open Days is England's largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,000 organisations, 5,000 events and 40,000 volunteers. Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE.

We are delighted that the festival is going ahead this year between 10 - 19 September 2021. Sheffield's Heritage Open Days events this year include some great in-person events as well as some great online offerings - and as always, access to all HODs events is FREE!

There's something for everyone so download our brochure here  and check out for more details and for booking. As always, access to all Heritage Open Days events is FREE but numbers may be limited and prebooking will be essential for most in-person events. 


Sheffield Civic Trust is proud to be the local co-ordinator of this important annual event and we welcome you to our 2021 programme in Sheffield.
