There’s plenty of fun for the whole family lined up on Heritage Open Day when Dudley Council uncovers some of its hidden treasures.
Children will be able to take part in a Mayoral Trail and enjoy quizzes and colouring activities on Saturday, September 14, when the council hosts the event.
During the event, people will have the opportunity to find out more about the Council House and take a peek behind the scenes at rooms including the main council chamber and the Mayor’s Parlour.
The national day is organised by English Heritage and as part of the event, Dudley Council has organised fun-filled events for the family.
The Council House on Priory Road, Dudley, will be open from 11am to 3pm. There will be guided tours of the council chamber, including a talk about how the council works and the insignia at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm when people can also see the mayoral badge, chain and mace.
There will also be photographs of Dudley town centre over the years on display and visitors can also join the Deputy Mayor and consort for tea in the Mayor’s Parlour.
There will also be performances from the Black Country Ukulele Players (BCUPS) on the council house steps throughout the morning.
Councillor Alan Finch, Mayor of Dudley, said: "While the exhibitions and tours are fascinating and interesting for adults we’ll also be putting plenty on for the children to enjoy. We hope as many people from across the borough and beyond will pop along and take a look for themselves.
