Cirencester Civic Society

We have completed the planning the Heritage Open Days events for 2017.

The dates are Friday 8th to Sunday 10th September 2017. New in 2017 is an Opening talk "Friend or Foe?-the Abbey of St. Mary and the townsfolk",  St. James's Place roof garden, & St. John's almshouses.

This year there will be 20 premises opening their doors including the Siver Street courtyard and the Old Station for the second year, and there will be several new walks on Saturday and Sunday.

A leaflet detailing the opening times and location of all the properties will be available from the Information Offices and other outlets in August. Everything is free to enter. A few properties will be offering refreshments (for a donation).

In 2016 a large number of people visited the numerous places which opened their doors. The record was for the Corinium Museum on Sunday when 345 people visited -probably because it was free!! This year the Museum is again open on Sunday afternoon.
