Bishop Auckland Heritage Festival


The festival runs from 10 to 26 September and is online, in person and on the radio. We're delighted to be partnering with 105.9 Bishop FM. Do join in and spread the word, wherever you are. We look forward to seeing you.

Who do we think we are and what exactly is heritage?

Join in this journey of discovery and share your stories and memories of the town and its people. Research your family and local history, learn about the latest discoveries, enjoy free exhibitions and events - and enter our competition to win two free tickets to the last showing of Kynren on Saturday 11 September.
