What an amazing four days it has been. A huge thank you to everyone who got involved whether you were an event organiser, a volunteer, a supporter, one of our sponsors or a visitor. We could not have done it without any of you, and whilst the weather wasn’t perfect it certainly didn’t stop us exploring, learning and having fun!
Over the forthcoming days, weeks and months we will be sharing here on our blog some of the many highlights, as well as more of Mike Hall‘s superb photographs. For now though we just wanted to say thank you to everyone who visited and who volunteered. All of you have made this ‘our best year yet’. We also wanted to remind everyone that both of our competitions are still live!
And just in case you were wondering the festival dates for Heritage Open Days 2018 are 13-16 September 2018. Official registration opens March 2018, but we will start planning here in Winchester in October 2017! Our themes for 2018 will include food and also the 100th centenary celebrations of votes for women. If you would like to help us organise next year’s events and unlock even more doors next year please do get in touch. Nicky, Mike and myself will be delighted to hear from you.
PS And a special thank you from me to Nicky for being such an inspiration to work with, and a thank you also to Mike for all these fabulous photographs.
