Heritage Open Days in Coventry 2019

Hod 25 2019

Friday 13 September to Sunday 22 September 2019

Heritage Open Days is a National and European initiative which is co-ordinated nationally by the National Trust with funding from the People’s Postcode Lottery. It is England’s largest grassroots heritage festival.

Locally organised by Coventry City Council the event is free and celebrates Coventry’s architecture, culture and local and social history.

The National Theme for 2019 is People Power.

So what does ‘People Power’ mean? Perhaps it’s the recent marches that have taken place in London, or the growing awareness of the dangers of single-use plastics. The phrase might conjure up images of the Greenham Common women, the poll tax riots, or even John Lennon and Yoko Ono, long-haired and hippyish in the Amsterdam Hilton. People Power is all these things – from small victories to global triumphs and everything in-between. Heritage Open Days - with its roots in local community and soft activism – has People Power at its heart, and the ability of local communities, groups and individuals to evoke change will be the main focus and theme for 2019.

This year Heritage Open Days celebrates 25 years. If you have any memories, stories or photos of past years please send them in to karen.aspin@coventry.gov.uk so we can share them at the event.
