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.

Acoustic Explorers

Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium
From: 25 Sep '21 10:00am -
To: 21 Nov '21 04:00pm

Sound can be epic. The explosive eruption of Krakatoa in 1883 could be heard over 3,000 miles away. The Saturn V Rocket was recorded to produce sounds as loud as 204 decibels. And even your vacuum cleaner can reach up to 90 decibels. But can we control sound?

Sound is set to get awesome this autumn with the new live science show, Acoustic Explorers. The final show in our 2021 Year of Sound is one not to be missed.

From Saturday 25 September to Sunday 21 November put your investigation skills to the test and become an Acoustic Explorer. Take an adventure through some epic sounds and find out what an acoustic engineer does. Discover what reverberation is and how we can use it to control sound. And watch as this all comes to life with some scientific smoke and mirrors.

And, of course, if the sound is epic, you can be sure the science demos will be too. There’ll be awesome live demos and fun audience participation. And we’ll be finishing off our Year of Sound with the mind-blowing, light-bending laser harp.

Pop-up Shop opportunity in prime location at The Marlands Shopping Centre, Southampton

Amazing opportunity for an ambitious and creative retailer to trial a pop-up retail space in a prime location at The Marlands Shopping Centre in Southampton.

Rent-free and business rates-free until 9th January 2022, with the possible opportunity to extend. Expressions of interest by Monday 25th October.

__________________________________________________________________

Working with GO! Southampton, the Marlands Shopping Centre is offering an opportunity for an ambitious retailer to take their business to the next level this festive season, with a rent- and rates-free retail space in a prime location.  As the city centre returns to its pre-Covid levels of footfall and customers re-discover the joys of shopping in person rather than on a screen, GO! Southampton and The Marlands are backing the next generation of retailer and giving them an opportunity to thrive.

Located in the unit formerly occupied by The Perfume Shop (unit 35), the site offers c.800 sq ft of space, comprising c. 550 sq ft of trading space, a small stock room, kitchen and toilet.

Is this the space for you?

We are flexible with regards to the type of business we would welcome to the space. Our priority is to support an ambitious and creative operator, who would like to expose their products and services to a wider audience. We would particularly welcome expressions of interest from local firms and individuals.

You would need to:

- Be able to mobilise quickly. We would ideally like to see the space occupied by the end of the second week in November to maximise the pre-Christmas trading period for you.

- Have experience of running a physical retail space. Although we are willing to offer some technical guidance to the successful operator.

- Have an interesting offer that would appeal to our customers.

- Be able to open during our core trading hours of 9.00 – 5.30 Mon-Fri, 9.00 – 6.00 Sat & 11-5 Sun.

There is potential for the opportunity to extend into the new year and beyond on favourable terms if the pop-up proves successful.

Interested in applying? If you are keen to take up this opportunity, please submit an expression of interest by Monday 25th October to helen@helensanter.co.uk

Tell us:

- About your business, and what you sell or do

- Why you are interested in the opportunity and how you would use the space

- About your ability to mobilise quickly and operate the unit

Please send:

- website and/or social media details

- Photos and/or description of your products and services (only if not shown on your website/socials)

Please be brief in your expression of interest. We will prioritise concise, persuasive pitches to take to the next stage.

We will invite shortlisted businesses for a discussion by video call before making a final decision. The video call will take place on Friday 29th October. Please advise in your expression of interest if you are unable to make this date.

We look forward to hearing from you

Did you know Westquay runs a regular weekly quiet hour? The centre and its retailers work together to create a quieter than normal shopping environment. The hour allows 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 takes place every Monday 9am - 10am.

And there’s not just prehistoric activities to get involved in, there’ll also be two live Planetarium shows, huge live science demos and awesome interactive exhibits to excite and inspire all ages.

In the free Science Theatre Science Dino-mite show, our friendly dino rangers need help from some budding dinosaur investigators to explore the differences between the many types of dinosaurs that once roamed the Earth. This roar-some interactive show will involve lots of audience participation as a brand new species of dinosaur evolves right before your very eyes. There will also be roar-some dino-mite experiments that will have you on the edge of your seat.

And, as its Christmas, Santa will be swapping his red coat for a lab coat once again. Between 4 and 23 December he’ll be helping to delve into the mysteries of Christmas in the prehistoric era.

Mini paleontologists can join their archaeological excavation team on the hunt for buried bones in Dino Dig. And in the mini Fossil Festival families can touch and hold real and replica dinosaur teeth and claws that have been fossilised millions of years ago. Dino investigators will be able to get an insight into how these incredible creatures evolved and lived, including some that would have even called the South of England their home. There’ll also be special guests throughout the festive period including real-life paleontologists and experts from across the field.
