The Faversham Society is celebrating the 50th year of Open House this year.
Open House is the annual opportunity to gain special access to properties of considerable historical and architectural interest. Community minded owners open their properties on the 6th, 13th & 20th July 2019 so we can view and enjoy these special places.
It was one of the forerunners of Open Houses and may well have been used as a template for the National Heritage Open Days Scheme. Our prestigious event offers a unique insight into the town’s built environment. Faversham has over 500 listed buildings, some of which will be participating this year.
Our special comprehensive edition of the handbook (£9) will be on sale from the 4th June in Faversham in the Visitors Information Centre, Preston Street; the Shepherd Neame Shop, Court Street; St Judes Welcome Centre, Tanners Street, and the Heritage Hub in the Forum, Sittingbourne. For groups of 2-4 people, admission to properties will be £9 for the 1st member of the group (to include 1 handbook) and then £5 for any additional member of the group (Programme only, no handbook). Each handbook and programme allows entry to all properties on all 3 Saturdays.
