About us

Discover Norfolk's hidden histories

"One of the very best events in Norwich. Hugely inclusive."


Heritage Open Days (HODs) is England’s largest festival of history and culture and gives everyone free access to experiences and events where you can explore heritage sites, discover some hidden gems not normally open to the public and learn more about the cultural heritage in our communities.   

Norfolk HODs is a collaboration between hundreds of venues, organisers, community partners and volunteers who work to bring the festival to life for thousands of residents and visitors. The Forum Trust funds the coordination and promotion of Norfolk HODs each year as part of its charitable purpose and we’re proud to be coordinating such an important festival, which makes heritage accessible to the whole community. 

"Love the Heritage Days. We have so many wonderful historic buildings and sites in Norfolk, world class."
