In 2017, Heritage Open Days will celebrate England’s diverse heritage and history with over 5,000 events taking place during Thursday 7th until Sunday 10th September 2017. This year, through a series of new artistic interventions, we are seeking to unearth four stories, people, places and events that resonate with the rich Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) heritage in historic and contemporary England. We anticipate this will generate new audiences, creative connections, local partners and surprising places as well as enriching the existing programme.
