For one weekend in September each year many venues across Enfield open their doors to the public for free, as part of Open House, the capital's biggest architectural festival.

This year the week falls on 17 / 18 September, and will celebrate all that is best about the borough's buildings, places and neighbourhoods. It gives a unique opportunity to get out and under the skin of our amazing architecture, and in Enfield a variety of buildings both old and new will open their doors including:

  • The Dugdale Centre
  • Forty Hall
  • Millfield Arts Centre
  • King George V pumping station
  • Myddleton House
  • The Priory Hospital
  • The Royal Small Arms Factory

There will also be a special 'Meridian Water' tour showing the early stages of the development, which is the biggest live regeneration project currently in London.

To mark the event Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Community, Arts & Culture, Cllr Yasemin Brett, visited Forty Hall to see one of the current exhibitions there.

The exhibition, 'What Do I Need to do to Make it OK' features five internationally renowned artists who explore damage and repair, to bodies, minds, objects and landscapes, through stitch and other techniques.

Cllr Brett said "Enfield has some real architectural gems and is one of the most historic boroughs in London. I am therefore delighted to see council run buildings in the line-up for Open House this year.

"We have a range of venues open to the public, with some new additions and plenty of activities for all the family, so make sure you pop into some of these fabulous places during Open House Weekend."
