A chance for foodies to discover Norfolk’s edible heritage – Heritage Open Days festival returns in September

Festival dates 10-19 September 2021

Heritage Open Days will return to Norfolk in September organisers have confirmed. The popular annual festival coordinated by The Forum, Norwich sees venues across Norfolk opening their doors allowing visitors the chance to explore the county’s rich heritage for free.

Running 10-19 September 2021 the festival offers everyone the opportunity to explore new buildings, discover some hidden gems not normally open to the public and learn more about the cultural heritage in our communities.

The theme for this year’s festival is ‘Edible England’ so alongside tours and open days expect food related events and activities!

Commenting on the festival’s return Heritage Open Days Event Producer Katie Ellis said:

“Heritage Open days is back with a bang and we can’t wait to share our programme of events. This year’s theme is a real treat for foodies!

All this is possible thanks to our partners, event organisers and volunteers who are hard at work preparing this year’s programme. We hope you enjoy this year’s festival!”

Events will also explore the customs and quirks that have developed around what we eat and drink, as well as the fascinating history of some of our regional and national specialties.

Festival events will also include a mix of online and in-person events, which will reflect social distancing guidance to keep visitors safe.

The Norfolk Heritage Open Days programme is coordinated and promoted by The Forum Trust with support from Norwich City Council, Norwich Tourist Information Centre, Broadland District Council, Breckland Council, Thetford Town Council, Great Yarmouth Borough Council, South Norfolk Council, North Norfolk District Council, Visit North Norfolk and many local organisations and individuals.

Organisers are working with local heritage organisations, businesses and volunteers to create the programme and are calling for new venues and community groups to take part this year.
