September is so busy that many of us miss out on the fantastic Heritage Open Days that take place nationwide every year. Architectural and cultural sites, many of them closed to the public normally, throw open their doors during the second weekend of September for free visits and tours.
Our university chapel at Francis Close will be hosting talks, tours and events, organised by the University Archives and Special Collections, on Friday 12 September. You can read all about it on their blog.
If you’re in Cheltenham you can visit All Saints Church Pittville, Holst’s birthplace, and the town’s beautiful Regency synagogue. Across the county, places of interest include Chedworth Roman villa, Tewkesbury Abbey, Gloucester Cathedral, and many more. Wherever you are this weekend, spend an hour at a fascinating place you didn’t know about – or thought you knew.
