A Festival of Landmark

11-20 September 2020

An online festival of content inspired by our wonderful buildings and places

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’re doing it a bit differently…and moving our open days online.

So - welcome to our online Festival of Landmark 2020, a virtual feast giving access to some of our best loved buildings via podcasts, videos and webinars. Meet the people who care for our historic sites as well as those who have been inspired by them, as you delve into history, enjoy stories and songs, discover new visual arts and crafts, and meet some of the people behind the scenes at Landmark. You’ll meet artists, craftspeople, musicians, architects, housekeepers, historians. And the best news is that it can all be accessed from the comfort of your armchair, wherever you are.

New content will be released on this page throughout the 10-day festival period and live events will need to be booked in advance. All content is family friendly, but we will flag those specifically aimed at younger audiences.

Check back in soon, for new ways to enjoy Landmark’s activities from the comfort of your own sofa!
