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

  • Bookings for pre-book events will open at 10am Monday 9 August 2021.

  • Most tickets can be booked online via the individual event listing 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 emailing [email protected] 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. We advise face coverings to be worn at inside events and to keep a comfortable distance from others where possible. Check individual event listings for any site-specific guidance.


Occasionally, events may be cancelled at short notice due to circumstances beyond the organisers’ control. 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. Please check this website for up-to-date event information.
