Angus Heritage, a part of Angus Council, is offering the opportunity of taking part in Angus Heritage Week and Doors Open Days 2013.

Angus Heritage Week will run from September 13 to 20; including the Doors Open Weekend on September 14 and 15.

The week-long celebration allows venues and groups in Angus to open their doors or hold events promoting our rich local heritage.

The 2012 Heritage Week featured over 40 events including talks, guided walks and tours, children’s activities, music events, exhibitions and open days. This year it is hoped to increase the number of exciting events held across Angus as well as the number of people visiting the venues.

Angus Heritage Week is a chance to highlight your venue or organisation, as well as any heritage projects you may be involved in.

Doors Open Days is co-ordinated nationally by the Scottish Civic Trust and contributes to European Heritage Days, which sees over 25 million people take part in activities and visits. Last year, 19 Angus venues opened their doors during Angus Doors Opens Days, allowing members of the public to see inside buildings that may not normally be accessible, providing the opportunity, free of charge, to experience not only cultural and historic buildings, but also some unusual and contemporary buildings.

This year, to celebrate VisitScotland’s ‘Year of Natural Scotland’ campaign, there is ‘Open Gates’ to feature gardens and green spaces.
