An Opportunity to Showcase East Yorkshire’s Heritage

Heritage Open Days (8th - 11th September 2011) are a fantastic opportunity for communities, voluntary organisations, businesses and individuals to promote rural heritage.

This annual four day event attracts more than a million visitors making it the biggest heritage event in England, and provides a platform for participants to show off local heritage by generously opening their doors to visitors, providing guided tours, open days, events and activities.

LEADER Coast, Wolds, Wetlands & Waterways are supporting this year’s Heritage Open Days by co-ordinating and publicising events. LEADER will be running three half-day training events throughout East Yorkshire to help you develop and deliver your event. We will support you thought the process including free inclusion in regional promotional material.

By taking part in this national scheme and registering an event on the Heritage Open Days website your event will be automatically fully insured and guaranteed to be included in all national and local publicity.

But nothing will happen without YOUR HELP. Why not take this opportunity to get involved. If you have an historical gem you would like to show off, perhaps it’s an historic building, archaeological monument or heritage walk you enjoy why not share your passion with others.

East Yorkshire is home to some of England’s best heritage, and yet one of the poorest participants in the Heritage Open Days scheme. Let’s show off what we have to offer!
