Heritage Open Days
Discover the Leeds Beckett University story on Heritage Open Days
At Leeds Beckett University we are proud of our heritage and our place within the community. For the first time we are opening the doors of our Headingley Campus from 14-16 September 2018 as part of Heritage Open Days.
2018 will also mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War during which our campus was designated 2nd Northern General Hospital, treating over 57,000 patients and performing nearly 12,000 operations.
Visitors to Heritage Open Days will be able to explore our campus and its historic buildings. Including the impressive Grade II listed, James Graham Building, that dominates ‘The Acre’ the green space at the heart of our campus and The Grange, a former monastic farm dating back to the 1600s and allegedly the most haunted building on campus.
Join us during Heritage Open Days to find out more about our historic campus. We will be offering guided and self-guided tours, guided night time ghost tours, talks and exhibitions as well as a treasure trail. You can also enjoy a delicious selection of cakes from our on campus coffee shop. Whether you live locally or you are current or former student, staff member or indeed a history buff, you are sure to learn more about the role that Leeds Beckett has played over the years.
This is a free event, though some talks and tours will need to be booked.
Bookings will open on Monday 13 August.
