Surprise! Surprise! Gosport will now be celebrating HODs with events which span a double set of dates…..
6th – 9th of September has now been added to the initial dates of 13th – 16th of September this year. That’s 8 days of HODs!
This won’t necessarily mean more events in Gosport but they will be spread over a longer period so that your visiting schedule may be a little less cramped. We hope that you enjoy this new flexibility and continue to enjoy exploring your heritage…for free.
This year, Heritage Open Days will celebrate through our theme of ‘Extraordinary Women‘. In part, the theme is in recognition of the centenary of the Universal Suffrage Act, when (some) women finally gained the right to vote. But alongside celebrating the unique achievements of the suffragists, we want to tell the stories of the hundreds and thousands of other women who have changed our lives, in both large and small ways over time.
