Heritage Open Days
Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,500 organisations, 5,000 events and 40,000 volunteers.
Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE.
BOST are taking part in this year’s Wirral Heritage Open Days for the first time, and will be joining our good friends and neighbours from Clifton Road Masonic Hall on Sunday 9th September.
The Clifton Road Masonic Temple is a Grade II listed building, which was originally a substantial villa designed c. 1845, by Birkenhead architect, Walter Scott.
Don’t miss this unique chance to see within the walls of a Masonic Temple, talk with members on why they joined the organisation and hear of the charitable work they undertake.
BOST members will also be present, between 10am – 1pm, to perform a range of musical theatre songs and tell you all about our upcoming productions. We will also be dressed in Victorian costumes to mirror the era in which this great piece of architecture was built.
