Open Doors at the Royal Commission September 2013

This year the Royal Commission is working with partners at three Open Doors events. These are held every year during September, when hundreds of sites and buildings are opened (free of charge) to the public, with many also offering guided tours, talks and exhibitions.

Denbigh Town Hall (nprn: 23423) - Guided tours of the historic town of Denbigh on Saturday, 21 September.
On Saturday 21 September, Royal Commission investigators will be happy to share what they have learned during the preparation of the next Royal Commission publication, which is on the historic town of Denbigh. They will be leading two guided tours of the town, highlighting a range of domestic, religious, commercial and public buildings. Each tour will last 1½ hours and participants are asked to meet outside Denbigh Town Library at 11am and 2pm. Places are limited to 15 people and bookings will be taken by Denbigh Town Library.

The following day, on Sunday 22 September, Royal Commission military historian, Medwyn Parry, will be giving two talks during the Open Day at the eighteenth-century coastal defence complex, Fort Belan, Llanwnda, Caernarfon.
