Cirencester Civic Society

Heritage Open Days 2018 were held from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th September.

The Society has been responsible for organising this event in Cirencester for the past twenty years. Each year we try to find some new events and buildings which enable residents and visitors to learn more about the heritage of the town.

New for 2018 was a Talk on Friday 7th September about War memorials in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of the first World War. The Mansion Gates were open and the Town Band playied outside from 11.00-12 noon on Saturday 8th September.   On Sunday 9th a walk around town describing some of the historic pubs which used to trade took place and had to be repeated in the afternoon.

Full details were available on the national website:- and on this website :- documents page.

In 2018 over 2000 people visited the numerous places which opened their doors. The record was for the Corinium Museum on Sunday afternoon when 435 people visited -probably because it was free!!

The dates for Heritage Open days are 13th-15th September 2019 and we have started planning the events.
