From Thursday, 8 to Saturday, 10 September, the Guildhall will be open from 10am to 4pm with free admission. Guided tours by the curator will also be available on request on the Friday.
Fiona Jenkinson, curator for the Guildhall, said: “We hope that people will take the opportunity of these Heritage Open Days to explore the fascinating heritage of the East Riding, obviously including Beverley’s own Guildhall.”
Outwardly, the Guildhall presents a rather formidable façade but inside it is full of hidden gems. Aspects of the building’s long history since the 14th Century can be glimpsed, including some of Beverley’s few remaining medieval timbers, the original 17th Century oak furniture and the stunning 18th Century courtroom.
There are also reminders of Beverley’s civic pride, such as the ceremonial 15th Century waits’ chains and a display of silver presented to the town over the centuries.
Children can also take part in a challenge to locate the beavers that call the building home.
A leaflet containing a map and details of all the events in East Yorkshire is available from local tourist information offices and libraries, or can be downloaded from www.rpey.co.uk/leader/latest-project-news-and-events
