Nearly 300 people participated in our celebration of 1000 years of creativity in Turvey, as part of the national Heritage Open Days scheme. For 2023 the theme of the scheme was Creativity Unwrapped, and I think everyone would agree that Turvey has a fantastic tradition of creativity in all its forms! We decided to celebrate this wonderful history with an exhibition, audio visual displays, and live performances in All Saints’ Church. Our event took place on Saturday 9th September and Sunday 10th September, and like all the Heritage Open Days events was free to visit. Have a look at our page on the national website, and also our information leaflet: Heritage Open Day 2023 information. For a complete report of the weekend and lots of photos, see our article 1000 Years of Creativity in Turvey: Saxon Stonework to Singing on Zoom.
