• Welcome to Gosport Heritage

11th to 20th September 2020

We are delighted to confirm that Heritage Open Days is GO for 11-20 September!

Digital events will be offered for the first time as well as any in-person opportunities possible within government guidelines at the time of the festival. Communities will be able to celebrate the stories of the places and spaces that are important to them in new and innovative ways. Visitors will be able to participate in activities from all around England and explore even more hidden places and local gems from the comfort and security of their armchair.

Your Gosport HODs Team are busy registering events for our more slim-line but, hopefully, just as enjoyable range of heritage activities.

We won’t be producing a printed programme this year, but details will become available online here by mid-August. 

As always, the Gosport Tourist Information Centre will be happy to tell people about the upcoming Gosport HODs events, as soon as the details are confirmed.    

Remember to keep an eye for updates on our Facebook Page too … 


And we highly recommend checking out the national HODs website from 11th August so that you can choose virtual activities from all over England…


Can YOU help ‘Gosport Go DIGITAL‘ for HODs?

Heritage Open Days (11-20 Sept) will be offering digital heritage experiences for visitors this year, for the first time. So, your Gosport Team are appealing for Volunteers with skills in creating content… such as virtual tours; online galleries; up-close explorations of artefacts; short interviews; workshops and live-streamed activities!
BUT, with only just over 7 weeks to go, we need help NOW from people with a flair for making videos and audio recordings; editing material, etc. Whether you’re just adept at using a mobile phone to create short clips or have more professional equipment available to you, the important thing is that you have some time to spare now to benefit our local input to England’s largest festival of history and culture.
This is a great opportunity for Gosport to share its wealth of heritage stories to a much wider audience who may enjoy exploring our town from the safety and comfort of their own armchairs, from anywhere in England or the wider world.
Please message us here or email info@gosportheritage.co.uk if you think you may be able to help. Our small Digital Team are eager to hear from you…

Volunteers welcome…

Are you interested in helping with Gosport Heritage Open Days?  Our friendly local team are planning the programme throughout the year so we need more volunteer helpers now (or whenever you have time)!
