Today was the first day that the DMU Heritage Centre and the Trinity Hospital Chapel were both open for Heritage Sunday. Heritage Sunday is run by Leicester City Council and allows the public to access buildings that are normally closed, including the Magazine Gateway, Wygston’s House, Leicester Castle and Castle Motte and Bailey.
We decided that it would be a great opportunity to open up the Heritage Centre and the Chapel too. Our decision was justified as 32 people visited the Heritage Centre and 38 came to the Chapel, despite some bad weather. We had some nice comments from people who “had always wanted to visit the Chapel”.
We’ll be open again on forthcoming Heritage Sundays: 28 June, 26 July, 30 August, 27 September, 25 October and 29 November.
Hopefully anyone who can’t make it to the Heritage Centre during the week will come and visit on one of these Sundays.
