Explore 400 years of history at Leeds Beckett's Heritage Open Days Weekend
The university is opening up its Headingley Campus for three fun-filled days of events, activities and games celebrating the history of the estate.
With nearly 400 years of heritage to explore, expect a weekend filled with facts, anecdotes and tours of the Victorian era buildings on the estate.
Entry is free, with plenty of entertainment available for all ages.
It is an opportunity to enjoy a summer’s day out with the family and get to know the story of the area. Although Leeds Beckett’s association with the Headingley Campus stretches back over a century, the estate has been a Leeds landmark for even longer.
The Grange, which is the oldest building on Campus, has stood since 1626, and formed part of the temporary hospital that was based on the estate during the outbreak of World War I.
Alongside an insight into the university’s past, the university will also be showcasing plans for the future of the Campus as it continues to develop and modernise the facilities.
Our event will be one of over 5,000 taking place across the country over two weekends as part of England’s largest grassroots heritage festival.
Now in its 24th year, the Heritage Open Days scheme aims to show off the rich and diverse cultural history available on our doorsteps.
Further details of the events planned for the weekend will be announced over the next few months.
