Get Involved in EHOD 2018 22 August 2018

Get involved as Northern Ireland celebrated European Heritage Open Days (via the Department for Communities)

With over 300 venues taking part, this is one of Northern Ireland’s largest free events open to the public. It will take place on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September. 

It is a celebration and appreciation of our rich and diverse culture and heritage where the ‘doors will open’ to historic buildings and monuments, some of which open to the public for the first time.

Adults and children will be entertained with living history, performances, arts and crafts and much more. The theme this year is ‘The Art of Sharing,’ meaning that venues will have the opportunity to share heritage stories of their buildings and their connections to locations and people through talks, tours, exhibitions, craft, art and performance or screen.

European Heritage Open Days, now in their 21st year, are the most widely celebrated participatory cultural events shared throughout Europe, and in Northern Ireland their popularity has continued to increase over the last few years.                                                                                   .
