Strule Arts Centre is offering a number of free events for European Heritage Open Day Weekend which takes place on Saturday 09 and Sunday 10 September 2017. European Heritage Open Day (EHOD) is an annual Europe wide event which aims to promote public interest in historic and modern buildings. This year, the theme is ‘Heritage and Nature: A Landscape of Possibilities’. This provides the perfect opportunity to explore not only built heritage but natural heritage and how the two complement each other.
Enjoy the built heritage of Omagh’s churches during a walking tour with guide and historian, Vincent Brogan on Saturday 09 September at 11 am starting from Strule Arts Centre. ‘Capturing Omagh’ is a fascinating visual presentation and talk featuring old images of Omagh and the buildings that make up the history of the town at 3 pm. Or take a wander through the Roof Top Museum and see some interesting artefacts and a new display of cameras and images from the past.
On Sunday 10 September get on board the EHOD bus tour and experience the natural heritage and landscape as you get out and about and visit some interesting heritage sites in Omagh, Gortin, Creggan, Carrickmore and Sixmilecross. The events reflect the theme for European Heritage Open Day 2017 combining built and natural heritage which offers an interesting way to find out more about Omagh and the surrounding areas.
