Digital events were offered for the first time as well as in-person events possible within government guidelines at the time of the festival. This meant you were able to participate in online activities from all around England and explore even more hidden places and local gems from the comfort and security of your armchair.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

That’s all folks – 10 days of Heritage Open Days have come to an end.

And that’s it Nationally – 1700+ events, 10 days, 1 festival. We can’t wait for you to join us again in what we hope will be a brighter 2021.

Locally, we thank those who made this another different but successful year of Gosport HODs:-

  • Gosport Borough Council who assisted with printing
  • all of our organisers and volunteers who led and assisted with tours/talks
  • our volunteers who worked behind the scenes on admin and bookings
  • our small Digital Team who deserve a special mention for their great work
  • AND especially everyone who turned up or logged in for our 2020 events

Some recordings of our live events and some great videos posted especially for HODs, are still available to view on the Beyond GHODs menu.

Volunteers welcome…
