Excuse the mess! We are just updating and improving our website so please bear with us.
13th to 22nd September 2019
This year, Heritage Open Days is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary
Gosport was involved in the very first pilot events in the Country in 1992, so we’ll be 27 years old this year!
‘PEOPLE POWER: Then, Now, Always’, this is an opportunity to tell the stories of people who have changed and shaped your world.
We want to know about movements that have been created, friendships forged, communities strengthened and buildings saved. We want to know about the people who have been instrumental in creating your Heritage Open Days, and the benefits and changes this has brought to your community.
People Power comes in all forms: rebel songs, protest marches, conversations over tea and cake in a church hall. We want to highlight all of these and more.
Tell us your stories
But first things first. To make 2019 a true celebration of both HODs and People Power, we need to hear from you! Click the image above to tell us your stories.
We try to add some new and interesting heritage events each year, whilst still retaining the ever popular oldies like HMS Sultan. We’d love to hear your ideas for potential new events. Share your thoughts with us and we’ll try to make it happen.
– this work consists of three large heritage-based art projects, focusing on the people of Gosport. It covers the town’s important role in the First World War. Click the image on the right to find out more and to download the booklet.

Here’s a short film that Media students from St Vincent College made in 2017 to give a flavour of Heritage Open Days in Gosport.
