Only two months to go!

On 13th September the festival doors open and the first of our 140+ events to celebrate our local heritage, culture and history starts.

So we thought today, with less than two months to go, would be a great time to open our box office for our mailing list supporters.

It is FREE to subscribe to the mailing list, and benefits include

  • Advance booking of festival events

  • 12 newsletters per year

  • Notifications direct to your inbox of changes and additions to the programme

If you are not already a member sign up today by entering your email in the box at the bottom of this page or by clicking here.

We hope you will join more than 600 other supporters as this year is Heritage Open Days’ 25th Anniversary and there is much to celebrate from Keats200, People Power, the First 100 Years of Women in Law, the centenary of Women’s Engineering Society and a Food & Drink theme.

With plenty of activities for children and families, performances, exhibitions, activities, talks and tours, you are bound to find something to appeal to you and your family. Why not invite friends who are not lucky enough to live in Hampshire to come and join in the fun?

Festival programmes are available from Winchester Tourist Information and the Discovery Centre, or you can check it out online.
