It is the 25th Anniversary of Heritage Open Days this year. Every September some 40,000 volunteers across England organise 5,000 events to celebrate our fantastic history and culture. It's your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – all of which are FREE to explore. The best place to find out what is on, is the main website heritageopendays.org.uk
Ladbroke church is open every day of the year for you to come and enjoy this beautiful, and usually peaceful, building with its fine stained glass windows but we are doing special things for Heritage Open Days on:
Friday 13th Sept 2pm - 4.30pm
Sat 14th Sept 10am - 4.30pm
Sunday 15th Sept 2pm - 4pm
There will be a MAP EXHIBITION where you can see many different ones created over the last 400 years, what they teach us about life at the time they were made and how much places have or haven't changed. We will have information on two cartographers linked to Ladbroke and kids can go exploring and become map makers themselves.
On Saturday you can also join amateur radio enthusiasts broadcasting to and from the church on 7MHz. Our call sign will be GB4ASL (for All Saints Ladbroke) or have a guided tours of this 700 year old building and its amazing stained glass at 11am and 3pm.
Refreshments will be available too. Do come along, remember it's all free.
