Open Doors 2019

A Heritage Open Weekend at Llanfyllin’s historic Workhouse, Y Dolydd, with a Food Fair on the Sunday. A chance to see one of Britain’s best preserved Victorian workhouses, under restoration by a community trust and home to a range of creative enterprises. The focus for 2019 is on the restoration of The Master’s House, starting this autumn, and visitors can see an example of traditional slate roofing at ground level as well as the newly re-created cupola that will soon crown the roof. Local harpist John Browne will play on both days, and there will be guided tours and an exhibition of painting, textiles and photography by young local artists. Bookshop and Workhouse History Centre open with film and family trail. On 15 September the Food Fair will showcase the best in locally produced food and drink with a wide range of produce and street food available to sample and enjoy. Cookery demonstrations throughout the day. Live music in the afternoon by the Oswestry Jazz Orchestra and other local musicians. Open studios including model railway, leather working, textile upcycling, artist. Refreshments. Open 10.00 – 5.00. Free entry and parking: donations welcome to the Master’s House Appeal.
