Bookings open for Norfolk Heritage Open Days – what will you see and do?

Norfolk Heritage Open Days returns Friday 9-Sunday 18 September, with ten days of unmissable events celebrating the region’s history. With a fantastic programme of free drop-in events, and pre-book tours, talks, walks, shows and more, tickets are expected to book up extremely quickly.

Pre-book events go on sale Monday 22 August, 10am, with tickets available online on or directly from the event organisers. A full programme of all the Norfolk Heritage Open Days events can be found online at

With more than 300 Heritage Open Days events taking place in Norfolk alone, the programme encompasses many elements of local history, giving visitors the opportunity to explore unseen areas of our most-loved locations, learn the stories of our county, and experience unique events.

Katie Ellis, Norfolk Heritage Open Days Event Producer says “With so many fantastic events across the county, there’s sure to be something for everybody to enjoy! Our pre-booked events have limited availability, so we recommend booking early, or joining us for one of our brilliant drop-in events.”

The national theme for Heritage Open Days 2022 is Astounding Inventions, celebrating ingenuity and scientific creativity across the country. Norfolk Heritage Open Days is coordinated by The Forum, where a special exhibition marking ‘250 Years of the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital’ will take place, as well as a series of fascinating talks which explore the history of medicine.

With a mix of drop-in and pre-booked events, the ten days of the festival gives locals and visitors the opportunity to discover a new perspective on familiar spaces, and venture into locations normally closed to the public.
