Heritage Open Days 8th to 11th September 2016.
Heritage Open Days is England's biggest festival of history and culture involving over 40,000 volunteers. Every year over four days in September, thousands of events across the country invite you in to explore local treasures of every age, style and function. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE.
Events are organised country wide to celebrate history, architecture and culture and to provide an opportunity to see hidden places.

There are 85 events in Sheffield, one of which is at the Reading Room in Grenoside.
We will be providing a cafe, heritage activities, an opportunity to look at our archive material and to talk to the trustees. There will also be organised visits to the cupola furnace hosted by Helen Jackson (see forthcoming events).
