Heritage Open Days in Beverley

Heritage Open Days are being held nationwide this week to help bring local history and culture to life. And as part of the progarmme, there’s a chance to go behind the scenes at the Treasure House in Beverley on Saturday, from 10am – 4pm. This is a free event and areas not normally open to the public are included to give a glimpse of the inner life of the Treasure House and its fascinating collections. There will also be children’s activities, including games, crafts and a treasure hunt.

This Friday, there’s also a chance to visit County Hall in Beverley, while Skidby Mill will be offering free admission on Saturday and Sunday, between 10am and 4.15pm. And for this weekend only visitors will be able to gain access up to the open stone floor, which is normally closed, although milling is currently suspended, because of a technical fault.

As previously reported by Beverley FM Beverley Minster will be taking part in this year’s heritage festival, with an open day on September 8th, between 10am and 4pm. It will feature an exhibition of traditional craft building skills. A brochure of local events, which includes 11 venues and two history walks in and around Beverley, is available from libraries throughout the East Riding or from Beverley Tourist Information Centre.
