Heritage Open Day

Saturday, September 14th, 2019

10.30 am to 3.00 pm (last admission)

As part of Heritage Open Days – England’s largest festival of history and culture. A day for all the family! Opened by the Mayor and Mayoress of Sutton Coldfield, and Andrew Mitchell, MP.

Come along to learn about the ordinary people who exercised power in Sutton Coldfield in centuries gone by, in the setting of our beautiful parish church.

Lots of family fun including:

  • dressing up
  • craft activities
  • our ever-popular trips up the tower (weather permitting)

This will be our third Heritage Open Day and we’ll be supporting the national theme of ‘People Power’ with some wonderful stories from Sutton’s past, researched by local historians. Why did the Moot Hall collapse? What was all the fuss about the allocation of new pews? Find out about about the resistance to the attempted enclosure of Sutton Park – given to the people by Henry VIII himself.

Craftivism workshop

11.00 am to 2.00pm

A workshop as part of the Heritage Open Day at Holy Trinity Parish Church Sutton Coldfield. “Proud Cloud” will encourage participants of all ages to express their appreciation of those who have demonstrated People Power – from past and present! Using craftivism resources facilitators will encourage all ages to “have a go” at their very own “Proud Cloud” or contribute to a group effort.
