Celebrating Heritage Open Days at The Reader’s Garden Party
17th September 2023
This year marked the 29th anniversary of Heritage Open Days, England’s largest and free to attend festival of history and culture. We had a wonderful time at The Reader’s Garden Party on 17th September, as we came together to celebrate Heritage Open Days!
We were delighted to be invited to partake in the festival, alongside the launch of The Reader’s new park map and Garden Theatre Exhibition. The day was filled with fantastic live music, performances from community groups, crafts, demonstrations and drop-in taster sessions in Swing dancing from Mersey Swing.
The celebration warmly welcomed guests from both our local community and those who travelled from further afield to join the event. We’re so grateful to have taken part and to have been given the opportunity to share our cherished traditions, including cultural dances, Guzheng music, and choir melodies with everyone. Seeing people of diverse ages and backgrounds enjoying the music and celebrating our community’s rich heritage was heartwarming.
We would like to thank Rayna from Liverpool Confucius Institute who entertained the audience with an amazing dance performance, Mr Hou, a talented Guzheng musician, Evergreen Club members, our dedicated team and everyone who joined us to offer their support. We also extend our gratitude to The Reader for hosting such a brilliant event.
Heritage Open Days bring people together to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It’s moments like these that remind us of the power of preserving and sharing our cultural heritage.
We were very grateful to have been given the opportunity to perform at the Garden Theatre in Calderstone Park and to have community members join us to celebrate its special history. We look forward to participating again in the future.
這個慶典活動熱烈歡迎來自當地社區和遠道而來的賓客。 我們深感榮幸能夠成為其中的一員，並與大家一起分享我們珍惜的傳統，包括我們的文化舞蹈、古箏音樂和合唱團的美妙聲音。 看到不同年齡和背景的人們共同享受音樂，一起慶祝我們社區豐富的文化遺產，令人感到欣慰。
遺產開放日將人們聚集在一起，一同慶祝我們的文化遺產、社區和歷史。 正是這樣的時刻提醒我們「文化遺產, 共護共享，共同傳承」的力量和重要性。我們非常感謝有機會在卡爾德斯通公園的花園劇院演出，並與社區一起慶祝這個特殊的歷史。 我們期待未來再次參與。
