Doors Open Days, which is co-ordinated nationally by the Scottish Civic Trust, will take place in Angus during the weekend of 12 and 13 September 2020.
In light of the circumstances, Doors Open Days is going digital for 2020. Scotland’s biggest free festival of architecture will present its largest ever digital offering this September, as we celebrate Scotland’s buildings and stories online, through tours, lectures, DIY learning events and more.
So sit back, relax and enjoy seeing cherished historical Angus sites from the comfort of your armchair!
There are currently 16 venues in the 2020 digital Doors Open Days programme for Angus, with more still to come. Virtual content for each of the venues will be available to view online during the weekend of 12 & 13 September 2020. So whilst some venues may not be physically open, or you might not want to travel to them at this time, you can still experience them through digital presentations, video tours and stunning drone footage. Don’t miss the opportunity to find out more about these fascinating venues and the rich heritage of Angus.
Just a few of the programme highlights include a video tour of Arbroath Abbey, guided by young people of Arbroath, virtual tours of the buildings and exhibitions at Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre, as well as amazing drone footage of some iconic Angus sites including Caledonian Railway in Brechin. You’ll also get the opportunity to hear from some of our cherished Angus businesses as they answer our ‘Angus Quickfire Questions’.
“Doors Open Days truly highlight the diversity of Angus’ heritage. There are so many eye-catching and interesting places to see in Angus. During these times, it is fantastic to see venues getting on board with a digital offering and making sure that visitors don’t miss out on seeing their much loved Angus attractions.” said Councillor Braden Davy, Angus Council Economic Development spokesperson.
