Success for Oxford Open Doors

With clear blue skies, and without the crowds, Oxford Preservation Trust has scored another success with this year’s new-look Oxford Open Doors.

The weekend (12-13 September) saw an exciting programme of events, from the virtual, through to self-guided walks and some booked events at venues, all carefully planned with controlled numbers so that everyone could be suitably safe and distanced.

Although the 30+ virtual tours, talks and exhibitions were only available to view over the weekend, you can still explore Oxford with 20+ ‘Hidden Heritage’, ‘Green Spaces’ and ‘Partner’ walks, with a great range of family activities here!

“The challenges that this year posed were the very inspiration for trying something new. We have such wonderful partners in the University and the Colleges, and with support from Historic England, we have been delighted by the virtual programme we have brought together. Our activities online and outside have allowed us to engage younger and more diverse audiences than ever before.” – Debbie Dance, OPT Director
