Lincolnshire Heritage Open Days is back in 2020 with a very special festival.
For the 2020 festival, events will take place over a ten-day period, from Friday 11th to Sunday 20th September. The theme will be The Past and Pastimes - The Heritage of Lincolnshire's Leisure as we celebrate the county's heritage of and through free time and hobbies. From tours and talks on sporting clubs to re-enactments and model railways, visitors will be amazed to see how Lincolnshire leisure developed and grew through the ages.
This page also contains helpful downloads for organisers to use throughout the planning period, right up to the big event.
Please note that registration for inclusion in this years' brochure has now closed. You can still register your event for inclusion on our webpages and on the national site until 30th July 2020.
Ray and I have received quite a few emails recently enquiring about the 2020 festival in relation to recent events with the COVID-19 outbreak.
At the moment we are still working on the assumption that the 2020 festival will go ahead as planned, as the government advice so far only applies to upcoming events in the short term. I believe the country as a whole is hoping that we will be over the worst of it by September, so at the moment we are continuing to operate as planned and to schedule for the festival, but we are keeping it under review.
We have not received a definitive update from the national festival team, barring that they have been asked to work from home, whilst awaiting further advice from the government. We will of course forward on any important information we receive from the central Heritage Open Days team, as soon as we receive it.
Heritage Lincolnshire are currently following government and health and safety advice, and have reduced the office down to a skeletal crew in an effort to reduce exposure to the virus. As such Ray and I are working from home for the foreseeable future, but we will be doing the same hours and are easily contactable by email.
With this in mind, please could I ask you to use the email@example.com email as our main point of contact, as we will not be available via the office phone.
- In summary, the situation at the moment is that the festival will be proceeding as usual and we will keep you updated with our plans in the case of any change.
- All contact and queries regarding the Lincolnshire festival will need to go through firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to get back to you asap.
