Heritage Day in North Notts

Retford will be joining in on England’s largest festival of history and culture

Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE.

Retford has been celebrating its rich history as part of Heritage Open Day for the last 12 years and traditionally incorporates a central theme, with 2019 focusing on the ‘Chesterfield Canal and Retford’s Working Heritage’.

On Saturday 14th September, 12 heritage venues including Bassetlaw Museum, the Majestic Theatre, Harrison’s Brewery and Retford Library will host guided tours and dedicated talks. There will also be narrowboat trips along the Chesterfield Canal on the Seth Ellis and many other events taking place throughout the town, culminating with an evening performance by Harworth Brass at Retford Town Hall.

This year the North Notts BID are sponsors of this yearly event, as it showcases the area and what it has to offer to both locals and tourists.
