Liskeard Unlocked – Heritage Open Days

September 11 - 13

| Free

Liskeard Unlocked is part of Heritage Open Days, England’s largest festival of history and culture and takes place every September. This year it is from September 11th – 13th September and due to Covid-19 restrictions it will take a different format.

Liskeard Unlocked will be mostly outside and online – to safely share the town’s stories and look to its future – with walks, talks, exhibitions and the chance to see behind doors which are usually closed. And, it’s all FREE. This year the theme is Hidden Nature.
