LSS: Heritage Open Day

Description: Leicester Secular Hall is open during the day (10:30am-4.30pm) for Heritage Open Day.

Tours of Secular Hall and Exhibition

Leicester Secular Hall, a Grade II listed building, opened in 1881 and home of Leicester Secular Society, the oldest Secular Society in the world.

An exhibition which includes displays and leaflets about the history of the society and the Hall. There will be guided tours of the building with an opportunity to see old Dutch tiles which are not usually on view.

Ned Newitt presents a display of historic images of what is now called the Cultural Quarter. This will include pictures of the old Wholesale Market area and Humberstone Gate. Some of these pictures have not been published before.

The Gimson family was one of the main sponsors for the building of Secular Hall. The first chair designed by Ernest Gimson was given to his brother, who was President of the Society for many years, and will be on display at the Hall. See http://leicestersecularsociety.org.uk/images/Gimson_Chair.pdf
