Prince Philip Barracks opens its doors for Heritage Open Days
The Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company is taking part in the country’s largest heritage festival by holding a range of activities at the former Prince Philip Barracks this September.
The activities will highlight and celebrate the heritage of the former barracks, and will take place over three days towards the start of September. The open days are free and suitable for visitors of all ages.
On Friday 8 September between 19:00 – 20:00, there will be a heritage talk on the army in Whitehill and Bordon.
On Saturday 9 September between 11:00 – midday and 14:00 – 15:00 there will be a tour of the former barracks and a visit to the memorial gardens.
On Sunday 10 September between 11:00 – 15:00 there will be a day of Roman-based activities, particularly for children. Visitors are welcome to drop in anytime between the specified times.
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.
Heritage Open Days was established in 1994 as England’s contribution to the European Heritage Days and has since grown into the country’s largest heritage festival.
