For the first time in its history, England’s largest festival of heritage and culture will feature online events as well as in-person activities. Heritage Open Days (HODs) returns in September, thanks to support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
Uncovering stories, sites, places and people that traditional history has overlooked or forgotten has always been at the heart of HODs. This year people can experience virtual tours and take part in online discussions as well as visiting historic places and green spaces in person. This means visitors can just as easily explore events across England, as those on their doorsteps.
The introduction of digital events marks a significant shift for HODs and its network of volunteer organisers.
Annie Reilly, Head of Producing at Heritage Open Days, said: “The festival is about connecting people so we can share in the amazing stories of the places, spaces, nature, heritage and history around us. The last few months have shown us how online events can bring us together even when we have to remain apart.”
“For many of our organisers, our encouragement of digital events has meant them thinking differently about their activities and trying technology they haven’t used before. The feedback is very encouraging and we’ve had a sneak peak at some brilliant tours and behind-the-scenes experiences”.
Yesterday (24 April), Sheffield City Council announced the shared launch of two new brilliant resources to support Sheffield children and young people (aged 0-24) and their families in lockdown.
Create Sheffield’s new website hosts a series of fun, creative adventures for young people, children and their families, brought together by Create Sheffield and their partner arts and cultural organisations from across Sheffield. The launch comes at the end of the week which should have seen the start of the summer school term. The website’s activities have been transformed into #homeadventures to try in lockdown. Participants are encouraged to share what they get up to on each home adventure on social media, and to invent their own #homeadventures to share with others across in the city.
‘50 Things to Do before you’re 5’ is also launching a Sheffield-focused version of their website and app. This fantastic resource particularly aimed at the under 5s has been funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government and special additional material has been put onto the website to help with its use for families in lockdown.
The app offers alternatives to the exciting visits available in Sheffield, with links to museum websites and ideas for home and garden. The 50 Things include activities that are based on research of how children learn. More importantly, they are low/no cost, accessible to every child aged 0 to 5 across the city and are great fun.
Families can get involved and share their adventures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #50ThingsSheffield #homeadventures

"You really don't need to put a name to the bird to enjoy its song, but most people recognise some birds' songs and usually wish they could know what they've heard. Well, Mark Avery can help you a bit with that because in this time of lockdown he has been writing a series of blogs about bird song: what particular birds sound like and bits and pieces of science, literature and personal stories thrown in. There are 20 short blogs on bird song so far and they lead you through some of our commoner songsters, and tell you something about them. At this time of year, more and more bird species are arriving back with us from their wintering grounds in Africa and he will be writing about them over the next few weeks too.
Here are links to the first 20 published blog posts. See https://markavery.info/blog/
This series of blog posts is illustrated with Tim Melling's photographs and the sounds come from the xeno-canto website.
