MK Heritage Open Days - September

Venue: Various

Times: Various

Milton Keynes welcomes Heritage ‘ReOpen’ Days this September!

Mindful of the restrictions of COVID-19, this year MK's arts and heritage community have really pulled out all the stops to find ways that we can enjoy our city's vibrant culture together in safety, following the Government Guidance to ensure Heritage Open Days takes place once again.

For some arts and heritage venues and organisations Heritage Open Days will be the first time they re-open to the public since Covid-19 and they are keen to welcome you back. Taking place over ten days from Friday 11 to Sunday 20 September, there is something for everyone as the area celebrates its fascinating heritage with guided walks, historic talks, cycle rides, workshops, craft events, open days, exhibitions and performances – all completely free to attend.

Key attractions opening their doors for free include Milton Keynes Museum, Stadium MK, Great Linford Manor Park, MK Arts Centre, Milton Keynes Theatre and the Cowper & Newton Museum in Olney.

This year's theme is Hidden Nature and you will find plenty of open-air opportunities and trails to get out and about to explore the natural environment across Milton Keynes and beyond. Join the Parks Trust's rangers for guided walks, walk or cycle the new Pilgrim Trail between Tattenhoe and Bradwell Abbey, explore Wolverton's green spaces and find out about the plants and animals that live alongside us – you might be surprised!

For the first time Heritage Open Days is going online, with virtual exhibitions and experiences alongside those in the physical world. Take a tour of the extensive art collection held by MK University Hospital with Arts For Health, explore the open studios at Westbury Arts Centre, join Buckinghamshire Archives for their Virtual History Festival and more. Take part in the HODs fun without leaving your armchair!

Please keep checking the Living Archive website and our social media to keep in touch with any updates to the events, as Heritage Open Days going ahead will be subject to any government guidelines that are in place at the time.
