Doors Open Days is Scotland’s largest free festival that celebrates heritage and the built environment, new and old. Every September, you can explore hundreds of fascinating buildings across Scotland for free. Some open up once a year, some just once in a lifetime.
Doors Open Days is a national event run by the Scottish Civic Trust. Information about the national programme, including event listings, can be found at www.doorsopendays.org.uk. Doors Open Days, along with Scottish Archaeology Month take place throughout Scotland and are part of European Heritage Days – an initiative which promotes a sense of community and a “common heritage” throughout the continent.
2018 Programme Highlights:
Bo’Ness Recreation Centre
Described by one architect as a “metal box” it has large areas of windows, typical of this period. This is an unusual opportunity to see a swimming pool from below and hear about the requisite treatment and its plant.
Completed in 1814 according to designs by David Hamilton of Glasgow, the Steeple is the iconic landmark of the town. The building has just been completely refurbished as part of the Townscape Heritage Initiative and this will be your first opportunity to see the results. There will also be an opportunity to inspect the two prison cells (lockups). These retain their original reinforced doors and traces of the iron cladding of both the ceilings and the floors.
Falkirk Football Stadium: Falkirk Stadium is home to the Scottish Championship club, Falkirk FC, and has a capacity of 7,937.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Doors Open Days Falkirk are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
