Westquay's Quiet Hour

Westquay Shopping Centre
From: 08 Jul '19 09:00am -
To: 31 Dec '20 10:00am

Starting Monday 1st July 2019 Westquay will be running a regular weekly quiet hour.

The hour is aimed at visitors, young and old that find large public spaces, noise and crowds of people difficult to deal with.

We hope this offer builds on the great work that’s been achieved over the last year with a range of our community partners to continuously work towards Westquay being an accessible environment throughout the year.

Westquay's quiet hour will take place every Monday 9am - 10am

KINGS & SCRIBES: THE BIRTH OF A NATION

Winchester Cathedral
From: 01 Oct '19 09:00am -
To: 31 Jan '25 05:00pm
THIS EXHIBITION IS CURRENTLY CLOSED.

Be one of the first to explore Kings and Scribes: The Birth of a Nation, a stunning new exhibition at Winchester Cathedral.
Winchester Cathedral is a living monument to the heritage of England and is one of the most historically significant buildings in Britain. From the time of Alfred the Great until after the Norman Conquest, Winchester was England’s capital and the Cathedral was its royal chapel. Much of England’s early history was based here and twelve English kings are believed to be buried here – meaning that Winchester can lay claim to being the first Royal Mausoleum. The opening of Kings and Scribes: The Birth of a Nation marks the culmination of an ambitious seven-year project to unlock the Cathedral’s stories and treasures by inspiring active engagement in the interpretation and exploration of our heritage.


Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and other generous supporters, a spectacular three-level exhibition space in the South Transept will take visitors on a journey through over 1,000 years of history, whilst offering awe-inspiring views of the Cathedral.


There are four exciting galleries to explore:


A SCRIBE’S TALE
The Winchester Bible is the largest and finest of all surviving 12th-century English bibles. Hear the incredible story of how and why the Winchester Bible was made, in the Cathedral where it was created, and admire its exquisite illuminated initials and elaborate decorative schemes.


THE BIRTH OF A NATION
Winchester played a unique role in shaping early English history and Old Minster, the Anglo-Saxon Cathedral, lay at the centre of its foundation. Join us on an intriguing journey of discovery as we unearth the secrets hidden within the Cathedral’s mortuary chests, meet influential Anglo-Saxon kings in the city from which they ruled and discover the role of Winchester’s Anglo-Saxon and Norman Cathedrals in the birth of a nation.


DECODING THE STONES
Unlock the mysteries of Winchester Cathedral, a building which has been created, destroyed and remade over centuries of struggle and Civil War. Decoding the Stones will tell the story of the Cathedral itself, linking modern restoration works and contemporary craftspeople with their medieval predecessors.


THE MEZZANINE
Explore the realities of monastic life at Winchester Cathedral Priory with a fascinating rolling programme of displays from the Cathedral archives. The Mezzanine also provides access to the remarkable 17th-century Morley Library and its outstanding collection of books, which have remained in their current location for over 400 years.

To: 28 Nov '20 11:00pm

Enjoy friendly banter as you travel on a steam train drinking local ale! Our famous Real Ale Train, or RAT as it is affectionately known, continues its tradition of serving real ale from a restored bar carriage pulled by a steam locomotive.

The RAT departs ALTON station 7.00pm, returning to Alton approx 10.30pm (connects with the 10:44pm South Western Railways departure from Alton, plus one further service after that).

Reserve a compartment Compartments can hold up to 8 people and would be exclusively yours for the evening for only £55. Limited availability so first come, first served. Available to book as an additional supplement when purchasing your tickets.

Why not fill your glass? Purchase an exclusive RAT pint glass as a perfect memento of your great night out - these glasses are only available to purchase on the RAT at £6 per pint glass.

Full Bar It's not just about ale - we also sell wine, cider, spirits, mixers and soft drinks. We regret that we are unable to accept credit or debit cards on the RAT - Cash bar only.

Vintage Bus Days

Mid Hants Railway 'Watercress Line'
From: 03 May '20 11:30am -
To: 04 Oct '20 04:00pm

On the first Sunday of the month from May to October a FREE vintage bus service operates from Alresford Station.

You do not need to purchase a train ticket to ride this service.

The vintage bus leaves Alresford Station on a circular route through Bishop’s Sutton at the following times on a trip lasting 20 minutes:

11.30 12.00 12.30 13.00 13.30

then 14.30 15.00 15.30 16.00

Unfortunately, due to their age these buses do not have provision for wheelchairs.

This vintage bus service is operated by the Medstead Depot Omnibus Group, who are one of three groups under the Working Omnibus Museum Project Ltd, and their buses frequently visit running days and rallies around the South. MDOG is part of a charity established in the late 1980's which provides a storage depot for 18 vintage buses originally running bus services in the south of England. The buses are owned and maintained by individuals or small groups.

Don't forget the Alton Bus Rally in July every year; it's one of Britain's biggest bus rallies and running days.

We are now open and we can’t wait to welcome you back.

We know it’s going to take some getting used to, and the way we all shop is going to feel different for a while.

Our priority is yours and our colleagues’ health and we have introduced a range of measures to keep us all safe. These include:

• A one-way system in the centre. Entry into centre will be using Arundel Circus, Above Bar entrances and following customer feedback we have now reopened the Multi-Storey bridge link entrance. Signage is in place throughout to help guide your journey while you shop.

• Clear signs throughout the centre reminding everyone of the need to social distance, and to avoid shopping in large groups.

• Hand sanitiser stations around the centre.

• Enhanced cleaning procedures throughout the centre.

• We are only accepting card or contactless payments at our Pay on Foot machines in the car park.

We’re restricting how many people can enter the centre and individual stores at any one time. This way, we can ensure everyone in the centre is able to social distance easily.

Please bear with us, as it might take a little longer than normal to get what you want when you visit.
