Heritage Open Day

Heritage Open Days is England's largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,500 organisations, 5,000 events and 40,000 volunteers. Every year for four days 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.

Reading UK has published a free map guide to Heritage Open Days in Reading which can be picked up from libraries and leisure centres. Full details of all the events/locations can be found at www.heritageopendays.org.uk.

The Rising Sun Arts Centre is a Grade II listed building originally designed and built by architect Alfred Waterhouse for his wife as a Temperance House. Some 138 years later it is now used as a vibrant and unique art centre with a passion for our community and heritage. Our cafe will be open with homemade refreshments and it promises to be a great opportunity to explore the centre and all it has to offer.
