Get ready for Norfolk Heritage Open Days

Booking Tickets 

All Heritage Open Days events are free for you to experience and enjoy. Due to limited capacity, some events must be pre-booked and tickets are allocated on a first come, first served basis. 

Booking FAQs

  • Booking opens Monday 17 August at 10am

  • Most tickets can be booked online on Eventbrite via theforumnorwich.co.uk/norfolkheritageopendays and your tickets will be emailed to you.

    In some cases you will be required to book directly with the venue by phone, email or online. Please check individual event listings for details.

  • Tickets are not available in person, by telephone, post or email with The Forum office.

  • All pre-bookable events have very limited capacity to enable them to go ahead with Covid-19 secure practices in place and we want to ensure all our in-person and online events are accessible as possible. If you are no longer able to attend this event, please cancel your order by going to the View & Manage Order section on your Eventbrite account or contact the Organiser if you have booked directly.

COVID-19 Considerations

All events will run in line with local and national government guidelines at the time of the Festival. At some sites, such as museums and galleries, it is mandatory to wear face coverings. We advise face coverings to be worn at all in-person events and to keep a distance of 2 metres where possible from those outside of your household. Check individual event listings for site-specific guidance.

In the event of cancellation of pre-book events, every endeavour will be made to contact ticket holders. We regret that we may not be able to offer an alternative for cancelled events.
