A Festival of Landmark

An online festival of content inspired by our wonderful buildings and places held in September 2020. All content is still available so please read on...

2020 has been a strange year. Normally in September, we fling open the doors of Landmarks across Britain as we join Heritage Open Days, as well as Cadw’s Open Doors and Historic Environment Scotland’s Doors Open Days. This year we did it a bit differently by moving our open days online. And the best news is that we're keeping the content available even though the official Open Days weekends have now passed.

Our online Festival of Landmark 2020 gives access to some of our best loved buildings via podcasts, videos and webinars. You’ll meet artists, craftspeople, musicians, and the best news is that it can all be accessed from the comfort of your armchair, wherever you are.

All videos have subtitles, a few with Welsh versions, and many podcasts have been separately transcribed.

Landmark Webinars
