Battle of Britain Day 2020 (80th) and Moffat will always be the home of Dowding! moffatmuseum.co.uk/dowding-introduction/ Also some pics of model cars produced 30 years ago to celebrate BOB Day 50th Anniversary, discovered yesterday when I opened the package amongst my father’s old bits and pieces. He was a lifelong RAF man, although in Greece and Middle East with 84 Squadron.

DOORS OPEN DAYS GOES DIGITAL!
Moffat Museum Doors Open Days (DOD) are going digital this year! (Find at: www.doorsopendays.org.uk/places/dumfries-and-galloway/moffat-museum/) Scotland’s biggest free festival of architecture will present its largest ever digital offering this September, as DOD celebrates Scotland’s buildings and stories online, through tours, lectures, DIY learning events and more. DOD are responding to current concerns surrounding COVID-19 by making Doors Open Days 2020 more digital so that people across Scotland and the world can continue to safely explore Scotland’s buildings, spaces, and places. A limited number of venues will still be open for physical visits this year, but DOD expects most people will enjoy new and cherished Scottish sites from the comfort of their armchair!
Across Scotland, DOD are harnessing the good will and spirit of adventure of local organisations to create unique content that will inspire, educate and amuse anyone with an interest in buildings. Extending ideas that were trialed last year, DOD are asking venues and groups to produce a wide range of online offerings, such as Facebook and Instagram Live guided tours, recorded oral histories, webinars, 360-degree tours, virtual exhibitions, question and answer sessions and more
DOD will be hosting everything through the Doors Open Days website (see below), from where you’ll be able to explore nooks and crannies in venues large and small across Scotland this September. The Scottish Civic Trust will also be creating a weekly e-zine highlighting all of the exciting digital events and tours on a region-by-region basis, which will be sent out through Doors Open Days’ social media channels and e-bulletin. (Find at: scottishcivictrust.us7.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=5ab3b89103f73d1108ebcee1a&id=162a19fe14)
There are ticket booking systems only for physical access to venues. DOD only encourages people to access buildings where the venue operators are confident it is safe to do so. The small number of events and buildings that will be open for physical visits will use a ticketing system to monitor and ensure safe access according to the most current social distancing guidelines. Numbers of visitors will be limited and monitored in line with the latest government recommendations appropriate to the Phase of lockdown in Scotland and the requirements of their and DOD insurers.
Doors Open Days is Scotland’s largest free festival that celebrates heritage and the built environment, new and old. Every September you can explore hundreds of fascinating buildings across Scotland for free. Some open this one time a year, some just once in a lifetime.
The purpose of Doors Open Days is to enable everyone to enjoy our shared built and cultural heritage by accessing places, spaces and activities not usually open to them, and this year you can do this through tours or talks or live sessions hosted through the Doors Open Days website.
