St John's Arts and Recreation Centre (ARC) will be holding a special Heritage Open Day concentrating on the area of Old Harlow and the ARC. The day will include talks by local historians on the local area and the ARC, family history workshops, exhibitions and displays including original materials from local shops that would have been here during the 1950's, 60's and 70's. We hope to open the tower which was built in 1840 and generally closed to the public. The tower gives incredible views over the town.
There will also be a Heritage Walk around the history of Market Street in Old Harlow, this will be the only pre-bookable part of the day and there will be a charge.
Refreshments will be available to purchase on the day.
