The organisers of Angus Heritage Week are appealing to building owners and event organisers to get involved in this year’s programme.

Taking place between September 5 and 12, the week will also incorporate the annual Doors Open Days over the weekend of September 6 and 7.

The invitation to take part is extended to any organisation or group that is passionate about local culture and heritage or involved in a local heritage project.

Organisers are also keen to hear from anyone who has a fascinating building or garden to showcase and would like to include it in the Doors Open Days programme.

Doors Open Days is co-ordinated nationally by the Scottish Civic Trust and contributes to European Heritage Days, which sees over 25 million people take part in activities and visits.

A spokeswoman for the event said: “Angus Doors Opens Days allows members of the public to see inside buildings that may not normally be accessible, providing the opportunity, free of charge, to experience not only cultural and historic buildings, but also some unusual and contemporary buildings, as well as gardens and open spaces. Angus Heritage Week, in association with Doors Open Days, is the ideal time to highlight venues or organisations and to showcase the rich culture and heritage of the local area.”

Last year’s programme featured a variety of events including talks, guided walks and tours, children’s activities, music events, exhibitions and open days.

This year’s programme will be launched in the summer. Anyone keen to get involved should contact Millie Clarke on 01307 473262 or by June 27 to ensure inclusion in the programme.

The week is supported by the European Regional Development Fund, through a Rural Tourism Business Support Project which aims to deliver an innovative, collaborative, partnership approach to improving tourism products in the region.
