Milton Keynes welcomes Heritage Open Days again this September!

Taking place over ten days from Friday 10 to Sunday 19 September, there is something for everyone this year as MK celebrates its fascinating heritage with a packed programme of over 150 guided walks, historic talks, cycle rides, workshops, craft events, open days, exhibitions and performances – all completely free to attend.

Key attractions opening their doors for free include Milton Keynes Museum, MK Gallery, Great Linford Manor Park, Westbury Arts Centre, Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre, The Stables Theatre and the Cowper & Newton Museum in Olney.

Cllr Robin Bradburn, MKC Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Culture said: “Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, it’s amazing that once again Heritage Open Days organisations have come together to provide a fantastic number and quality of events during September, on a variety of heritage and cultural themes.  This flagship heritage event really puts Milton Keynes on the map nationally and will provide exciting and safe activities that everyone can get involved with.

This year’s theme is Edible England and you will find plenty of opportunities get out and about and enjoy some fresh air whilst searching for edible plants on forgaing walks across Milton Keynes. Come to the Old School House in Wolverton to enjoy Foodie Forest School and Hedgehog High Tea, sample  the famous Buckinghamshire Clanger at the Old Bath House, head over to MK Museum for the annual Beer Festival or tuck in to a cream tea as you listen to the sounds of Milton Keynes Brass.

Once again there are online activities as well as plenty of self-guided walks and trails to keep you busy.

Please keep checking the Living Archive website and our social media to keep in touch with any updates to the events, as Heritage Open Days will be subject to any government guidelines that are in place at the time.

Horseshoe Walk in Great Holm tree management work:

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Great Holm residents – the tree inspector at MKC has informed the Parish Council that, regarding the Scots Pine trees at the Horseshoe Walk, some of them have been cut down now as they were causing subsidence to nearby properties. More will be felled in the autumn/winter as part of an MKC landscaping project, and will be replaced with smaller, more appropriate shrubs for the walk. Some of the oaks and more pines will be felled in order to retain the best specimens and best plant up the understorey. It will look worse before it gets better! If further info is forthcoming it will be posted here.
