Celebrating the best of Wirral's heritage

HERITAGE Open Days are taking place across Wirral in September 2016, in what promises to be 1 of the biggest and best festivals of its type anywhere. More than 100 free events are scheduled to take place all around the borough over a 9 day period between 3 September and 11 September 2016, to celebrate Wirral's architecture, history and culture.

Heritage Open Days are a national initiative co-ordinated by the National Trust but supported by many heritage groups and through funding from the People's Postcode Lottery. As has become tradition, though nationally the festival only runs for only 4 days, such is the scale of the Wirral programme that our Heritage Open Days take place over 9 days.

Among the highlights this year is a visit the newly renovated World War II air raid shelters at Birkenhead High School Academy. A chance to explore some of the historic rooms of Leasowe Castle and the opportunity to take part in a themed walk exploring the past, present and future of Wirral's Victorian masterpiece, Flaybrick Cemetery, also stand out this year. The Wirral programme is run entirely by volunteers and co-ordinated by Wirral History and Heritage Association, with support from Wirral Council.

Cllr Jerry Williams, Wirral Council's Heritage Champion, said:- "Heritage Open Days are one of the highlights of the tourism calendar for visitors and residents alike, with nine fantastic days of Wirral's important culture, history and heritage. From historic buildings and guided walks, to places of worship and wonderful gardens, there is something for everyone to enjoy."

Details of the complete programme can be found online.

Pre-booking is essential for many events, so people are advised to reserve a place as soon as possible.
