NATIONAL TRUST (ACT) OPEN DAY 2019

NATIONAL TRUST (ACT) OPEN DAY

GUNGAHLIN HOMESTEAD

SATURDAY 13 APRIL

10 am to 3pm

 

Invitation to participate

The National Trust (ACT) is very excited to be going back to Gungahlin Homestead for the 2019 National Trust Heritage Festival Open Day.

The Open Day is on Saturday 13 April – the opening day of the Canberra and Region Heritage Festival.  Note that this is the week before Easter and the start of school holidays.  We will be open to the public from 10 am to 3 pm.

We are very pleased that CSIRO, as the main lessee of the site, has agreed to this event, subject to some provisions including no animals on the site.  We will again be partnering with Soldier On, which currently occupies the Homestead and other buildings.  They will benefit from the gold coin donation for entry and also conducting activities on site.

As well as tours of the Homestead, there will be stalls, entertainment and refreshments available.  Our focus is on craftspeople, collectors and other non-profit organisations.  We are always happy to have new groups at the Open Day so any local groups interested in participating can contact me.

Gungahlin Homestead is not often open to the public and at our Open Day there in 2017, we had a very big, and unanticipated, crowd!  This led to issues about access to the tours of the homestead and in 2019 we will be issuing tickets for tours.  After collecting a ticket, people will be able to wander around, visit stalls and enjoy the entertainment while they wait for their tour.

Please contact me for more information.  Let me know by the end of January, if you want to be part of the 2019 Open Day.   This will enable us to include you in the promotion of the Open Day through the Heritage Festival publication.
