Welcome to Bournville Heritage Online 2020. We want to highlight the wonderful people and places of George Cadbury’s garden village, and the fascinating history it holds. Since the Cadbury factory was built here in 1879 a community has grown and flourished and we plan to share some of those stories.
Each September this incredible history is celebrated during Bournville Heritage Open Day, an event attracting thousands of people and involving over 15 historic sites which open their doors for free with exhibitions, tours and other activities. With the Covid restrictions in place this event is unable to go ahead in 2020 so we wanted to do what we can to make up for it.
Over the coming 10 days we will be bringing you a wealth of content that we hope will create a picture of what Bournville is like. For those that know it well, we hope it will help you reminisce and we would love to hear your stories. We would also love to hear from those that are discovering Bournville for the first time. You can get in touch by emailing your thoughts and pictures to [email protected] or by sharing them on social media and using the hashtag #bournvilleheritage
On this page we will be providing updates about how to access blogs, news stories, archival images, quizzes, trails and much more. We hope you enjoy Bournville Heritage Online!
Please keep visiting this page - we'll be adding daily updates until 20th September!
