A RANGE of buildings will be opening their doors for free to mark the this year’s annual Heritage Open Day event.

Every year, the Vale of Evesham Civic Society has sought to let people know about the splendid buildings which will once again open for free tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday (September 13).

This year, the Bell Tower, Evesham’s best known building and certainly the tallest is closed for restoration but will still provide a splendid sight.

And on the Sunday the Evesham Cyclefest is taking place in the All Saints Churchyard and in the Market Place.

The Cyclefest is a good place to start as all of Evesham treasures open at the weekend are within five minutes walk.

Visitors can vote for their favourite artefact at the Almonry on Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sunday from 2pm to 5pm.

St Lawrence Church will be open from 10am to 4pm on both days with a conducted tour of the church taking place at 2pm on Sunday.

The medieval delights of All Saints Church will be showcased on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 5pm and members of Evesham Arts Society will be on hand with their annual exhibition.

Visitors to Evesham Town Hall on Sunday from 10am to 4pm can view the historic council chamber and the Mayoral roll of honour dating back to 1605.

The town’s Uniterian Chapel in Oat Street will be open on Saturday from 10am to 4.30pm and on Sunday from midday to 4.30pm while the Friends Meeting House will be open on Saturday from 10am to 4pm and from midday to 4pm on Sunday.
