The Georgian Theatre Experience is one of the Richmond attractions that will be opening its doors for free on Saturday 17 March as part of the town's Love Being Local Day.
The Green Howards Museum, Richmond Castle and Richmondshire Museum will also be taking part in the event with free entry between 10am and 4pm. The Georgian Theatre Experience will be offering free guided tours throughout the day.
This is the third year for the event which is organised by the Welcome to Richmond group to remind the people who live here of the wealth of history and heritage available locally.
“We all know what a fantastic place Richmond is but sometimes we forget what’s right here on our doorstep,” said Eileen Halliday, Chair of the Welcome to Richmond group. “The Love Being Local Day is an excellent opportunity for residents to re-visit the town’s attractions or even experience them for the first time. Admission is free so people are encouraged to get round as many venues as possible, have a great day out, and then tell their friends, families and visitors what our incredible town has to offer.”
To gain free entry on the day, residents should bring some documentation proving their Richmondshire residency.
The Station, which does not charge an admission fee, is also taking part in the initiative, with free family activities throughout the day and Richmond Operatic Society will be performing a selection of songs from their upcoming production of My Fair Lady at 11.15am and 12.45pm. The Tourist Information Centre, located in the Library on Queens Road will also be welcoming visitors between 10am and 1pm to provide additional information on things to see and do in the area.
