Doors Open Day
Doors Open Day Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 September 2014
Doors Open Day Weekend in-conjunction with Angus Heritage Week and Angus Open Gates
Angus Council has a bumper year lined up for Doors Open Day, which is held throughout Scotland on varying weekends throughout September. This is Scotland's contribution to "European Heritage Days" and sees the simultaneous opening of thousands of buildings across Europe.
Doors Open Day allows members of the public the opportunity to see inside some buildings that are not normally accessible. It gives people the opportunity, free of charge, to take a look at some of the cultural and historical buildings that Angus is lucky enough to be home to.
Remember some buildings are by booked tours only and therefore you are asked to check the individual building by clicking on the links below.
Angus Council is also hosting Heritage Week which will run from 5 to 12 September. Full details of what is on through Angus Heritage Week can be found at www.angusheritage.com and on the Angus Heritage facebook page. Take a look at both programmes and see exactly what Angus has to offer and allow you to get to know your area.
