add to calendar
Heritage Open Days is England's largest festival of history and culture. Stories are told, traditions explored, and histories brought to life. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all free.
Meet members from the Kennet Valley Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers who will show you some of the traditional skills associated with the original purpose of the seventeenth century Cloth Hall.
Then explore the attic of the historic Cloth Hall – this is part of the museum building is not usually open to visitors and can only be accessed by a narrow and steep staircase.
Do a self-guided tour of the attic and to help you better understand its unique history you'll be provided with an A3 laminated interpretation sheet telling you some of the Cloth Hall’s story.
Although this is a drop-in event, you might be asked to wait a short time to gain access to the attic, as the number of visitors will be restricted.
