We took part in Open House London for the first time this September. This annual event is the world’s largest architecture festival, giving free public access to 800+ buildings, walks, talks and tours over one weekend in September each year. 

We weren’t sure what to expect when we opened our doors to the public, and were pleasantly surprised at the number of visitors and at their interest in our favourite old building, the Wheatsheaf Hall.

Our volunteers were on hand with their well-researched handouts on the history of the building and showed over 40 people round the building to admire the architectural features and hear abou the hall’s interesting history.
