The Heritage Open Days Talks programme has developed over the years to be a very well-regarded annual event.

Essentially, it is a series of presentations where the subjects are focussed on the city of Hull and Beverley and the surrounding area of the County of the East Riding of Yorkshire.

The talks look at the history of the people, the buildings the companies old and new, and the events in history which went to shaping the area, our country, and the world.

The speakers from a wide variety of backgrounds, range from regular, local experts in a range of topics, to academics, often from the University of Hull, to local people who are keen to shine a light on particular people or events.  Each year, around 30 speakers present a fascinating array of talks during HODS week.

This section of the HBHS website will have a page for each of the talks as listed in the HODS Brochure, and each of the pages will offer a link to the online talk together with biographical details of the speaker where available.

The great advantage advantage of putting some of the talks online is that your ability to’ attend’ one of the talks is not limited to a particular day during HODS week.  Instead it  will be available all year and from the comfort of your own armchair.

Happy listening!
