History and culture will be brought to life with over 300 property openings and events. A host of historic buildings will open their doors to the public, many for 10 and 11 September only.  This year’s programme features a wide variety of special events such as walking tours, history re–enactments and even an opportunity to bring the golden age of steam vividly to life with a visit to to Headhunters Railway Museum in Enniskillen. With all events free of charge and many family friendly, everyone can take the opportunity to step back in time.

The Minister launched this year’s programme of events at one of the properties not normally open to the public, Hillsborough Fort, which will be opened on the weekend by the Hillsborough Old Guard. A collection of photographs and artefacts from the area will be on display.

Minister Givan said: “Organised by my Department, it is very apt that this year’s theme across Europe is ‘Heritage Communities’. Nurturing such communities is vital if we are to ensure that our heritage is well protected into the future and able to support community cohesion and a strong economy.

“This year’s offering is more varied than ever reflecting the depth and diversity of our built heritage. From older buildings such as St. Nicholas Parish Church in Carrickfergus, dating back to 1180 to the new Strule Arts Centre in Omagh there is something for everyone, young and old, on your doorstep and further afield.
