The Council of Europe and the European Commission set up Europe Heritage Days in 1991 to raise awareness and appreciation of the richness and diversity of Europe’s cultural assets as well as the need for care and protection of them for posterity. The central principle behind the days was simple and compelling. They would throw open all the doors to historic buildings and monuments. Currently, Heritage Days they are held in September in
almost 50 signatory states to the original European Cultural Convention.
Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,000 local people and organisations, and thousands of volunteers. Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history.
Established in early 1994, the Heritage Open Days festival is England’s way of contributing to European Heritage Days by celebrating the regions culture and much more through the festival.
