Heritage Open Days is England's largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,000 local people and organisations, and thousands of volunteers. Every year in September, thousands of people come together across England to celebrate their heritage, community and history. Stories are told, traditions explored, and histories brought to life. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE.

New Wave is a training and development programme taking a small cohort of Heritage Open Days organisers and coordinators through a structured programme focused around working with young adults to develop new, innovative Heritage Open Days events.
