Open House weekend is on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September. This annual event celebrates the capital's architecture and aims to open up London's great buildings, especially those that aren't usually publicly accessible, to a wider audience. Participating provides a great opportunity to raise awareness of the Keppel Street building and the School's activities.
Last year over 500 people visited the School and were taken on a historical tour of the building which started outside looking at the features on the exterior of the building. Visitors were then led round the ground floor to the North Courtyard, upstairs to the John Snow lecture theatre and Library and then down in to the South Courtyard. At the end of the tour this year visitors will have the opportunity to view our exhibitions 'Resurrecting the Shakespeare Hut' and 'The Changing Face of Keppel Street' and pick up postcards, leaflets and publications relating to the School's history as well as to its current work.
On Saturday the School will have some researchers available to answer questions and showcase their work.
Here are some photos from past events:
