This year’s self-curated programme is the biggest in the festival’s 22 year history.
Up and down the country, bands of bell ringers will ring the changes in church towers and cathedrals, costumed interpreters will bring to life historical heroes and heroines, stories will be shared, doors to hidden places unbolted and gates to secret gardens flung open.
In the ancient City of York York Minster’s Stoneyard will be welcomeing visitors to its annual Open Day event on Friday 9 September, as part of Heritage Open Days.
Looking forward to the event, John David, York Minster’s Master Mason said: “Every year we are pleased to welcome members of the public to enjoy access to areas normally off-limit, learn about the challenges of maintaining one of the world’s greatest cathedrals and see demonstrations of some of the specialist craft and trade skills that keep the building in good repair.”
Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton visited York Minster to meet John and some of his team.
