The borough of Rochdale is ready to celebrate its fantastic architecture and heritage with the return of the National Heritage Open Days festival, running from Friday 11 September - Sunday 20 September.
Every year in September, England’s largest voluntary cultural event returns as a celebration of local and national heritage. Co-ordinated nationally by the Heritage Open Days National Partnership and locally by Link4Life, Rochdale takes part by opening the doors to various historic buildings throughout the borough that are usually closed to the public or charge an entrance fee.
Local buildings full of history will be open and free to explore, many of which include differing age, style and function across the borough all with fascinating guided tours and talks.
Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, this year's Heritage Open Days programme has been reduced, however all events will run in line with local and national government guidelines at the time of the festival.
Social distancing will be in place at all times, as well as one way systems, separate entry and exit doors both with sanitiser stations, two metre markings on the floor and masks must be worn (unless otherwise stated).
