Mitcham Heritage Day

11 September 2021

Details will appear here

Mitcham Heritage Day is our annual celebration of local heritage. We invite organistions to join in and stage events.

Everything that takes place on Mitcham Heritage Day is free (with the exception of evening celebratory concerts that have taken place in some years at Mitcham Parish Church to round the day off).

The programme includes guided and self guided walks, activities, things to try, special exhibitions and more. In past years people have tried bowls at Mitcham Bowling Club, rung the bells in Mitcham Parish Church, seen the basement of the Vestry Hall, been present at a book launch, heard a choir sing a song composed especially for Mitcham from the balcony of Mitcham Cricket Pavilion, and much more.

In 2020 we were fortunate to be able to run Mitcham Heritage Day the day before an England-wide law came into force limiting in-person gatherings to 6 people. Particpating organisation numbers were reduced, but we were pleased to still be able to offer a Covid-aware celebration of our area. Mitcham Heritage Day 2020 was part of Wandle Fortnight 2020 and Heritage Open Days.
