Welcome to

Heritage Open Days

Hidden Nature

This years theme for Heritage Open Days is "Hidden Nature".

Why Hidden Nature?

Uncovering stories, sites, places and people that traditional history has overlooked or forgotten has always been at the very heart of Heritage Open Days. Our natural world, and the impact we have upon it, is as much a part of this as the rise of cities, famous battles and technological developments. In the face of climate change, modern development and other threats, now more than ever does nature need to be cherished and championed. That's why this year is all about celebrating nature in its myriad forms.

What's on at Westbury?

We have a number of events happening at Westbury over the weekend of the 12th & 13th of September.  

You can choose to sit and relax in your favourite arm chair and visit our online exhibitions "Hidden Nature at Westbury" and "Milton Keynes' Hidden Jewel" which takes you on a historical journey of Westbury.

Alternatively if you prefer to get out in the great outdoors why not join us on our walk around the ancient woodland that is Shenley Wood.  The walk will be jointly led by a Parks Trust Guide and a representative from Westbury Arts Centre. Discover this ancient woodland that is on your doorstep and its connection to Westbury Arts Centre.

The centre will also be open from 11am-3pm on the 12th & 13th where you can enjoy a walk around the three exhibitions which will be on show.  

Full details on everything that's on offer can be seen below.

Enjoy!
