Turn back in time with the Heritage Festival, returning this September!

The beloved Kingston Heritage Festival is returning this September.

As summer turns into autumn, we start counting down to Kingston’s Heritage Festival which kicks off with a bang at the end of August! This year, the festival promises an unparalleled experience with a month-long celebration, unfolding a vibrant tapestry of history, culture, and community which will captivate the hearts and minds of locals and visitors alike.

Kingston Museum will unveil an enchanting Saxon Fayre to launch the Heritage Festival with a bang. Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of the past as the museum transports you back in time, complete with vibrant costumes, traditional crafts, and immersive experiences that breathe life into Kingston’s rich Saxon heritage.

At the heart of the Kingston Heritage Festival is a celebration of the town’s diverse heritage. From open days and workshops that delve into the history of its buildings and open spaces to events that showcase a medley of arts and crafts, music and dance, and even the flavours of different cultures, the festival brings together our community in a spirited way.

Kingston’s Heritage Festival is not just a celebration of the past; it’s a celebration of the living spirit that continues to shape the town’s identity. Keep a keen eye on our events page for what’s coming up this September! Find out more here.
