Heritage Open Days 2023

Heritage Open Days celebrates our buildings, natural and cultural heritage. This year there will once again be a fantastic range of free in-person and digital events to showcase the rich stories that make Reading such a unique place to live, work and visit.

The optional theme for Heritage Open Days 2023 is "Creativity Unwrapped" and a number of Reading’s events will tell the story of local creativity, from an anniversary "Hexabition" at the Hexagon to exhibitions at The Turbine House and Quaker Meeting House, to paper sculpture making in one of Reading’s oldest houses. All Heritage Open Days events are free to attend, but some need booking in advance due to small capacities.
