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.

An ideal gift for Father’s Day – a cruise on Steamship Shieldhall! Head down Southampton Water to the Solent, and enjoy the excellent Shieldhall Stompers Jazz band! On our return to our berth, we will steam by the departing Anthem of the Seas, Iona and Queen Victoria – always the chance to sound our whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’!

As part of your cruise, see the impressive engine room with its original steam engines at work and the bridge, with its traditional instruments and gleaming brasswork; admire the ship’s steam-assisted steering gear (similar to that used on Titanic); talk to the Captain and our volunteer crew; pass close to the great ocean liners and container ships; walk the teak decks; relax in the Saloon with our wide range of refreshments including tea/coffee; real ale; a range of Titanic bottled beers; wine and hot and cold food, available on all trips.

Children will have fun with our interactive Shieldhall Log Book, collecting stickers from various stations on board!

Whilst Steamship Shieldhall has had to cancel her 2020 sailing programme due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased to be in a position to release dates for 2021 sailings. In keeping Shieldhall COVID compliant – and working towards the industry ‘Good to Go’ marque during our closed season – we will initially be offering a limited number of tickets for each of our 2021 sailings. There is an expectation that we will be able to resume selling to Shieldhall’s capacity (currently 220 persons) at some point in the future, though this will be based on Government advice. Once the reduced capacity levels are reached, enquirers will be directed to a waiting list, and contacted when and if circumstances change. If a cruise does not go ahead, all ticket holders will be offered a full refund or the opportunity to transfer their tickets to another sailing.

Online Talk: Southampton's Missing Vikings

SeaCity Museum
From: 22 Jun '21 07:00pm -
To: 22 Jun '21 08:00pm

When Vikings pillaged their way across Wessex in the ninth, tenth and eleventh centuries Southampton wasn't spared. The history books detail numerous encounters, battles and massacres and the archaeology from this time paints a picture of great upheaval. And yet, no Viking discoveries have ever been made in Southampton, so where were they? In this brand new talk, join historian Andy Skinner in travelling back to the Dark Ages to spend some time in the company of heroic kings and warriors to discover more about Southampton in this fascinating age.

Please help support us by choosing how much you are happy to pay for this session. While all ticket buyers will receive the same level of service, your generosity would be a great help in making sure these events are affordable for all.

Clear instructions and details for how to log in to this talk will be emailed on purchase. Tickets are required for each device being used to access the event. Tickets are non-refundable, unless the event is cancelled by the organiser.

Portrait Drawing with Brian Reynolds

Southampton City Art Gallery
From: 03 Jul '21 10:30am -
To: 03 Jul '21 01:30pm

We are absolutely delighted to be able to host these drawing sessions, led by Brian Reynolds, in the gallery once again!

For these three hour sessions (10:30am - 1:30pm) our model will be in the same pose throughout so that those who wish to undertake a sustained piece of work across two weeks will be able to do so. At the same time, the gallery space is such that participants who prefer shorter poses will have the opportunity to shift viewpoints as they wish.

Although these are programmed as portrait sessions, but you can also concentrate on full- or half-length drawings of the clothed figure, working in pencil, charcoal or pastels. Huge opportunities then, for lots of creative work in the gallery!

Participants of all levels of experience, including beginners, are welcome and Brian will provide individual tuition throughout the session as required.

We will supply the basics, but please do feel free to bring any drawing materials you would particularly like to use.

Whilst Steamship Shieldhall has had to cancel her 2020 sailing programme due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased to be in a position to release dates for 2021 sailings. In keeping Shieldhall COVID compliant – and working towards the industry ‘Good to Go’ marque during our closed season – we will initially be offering a limited number of tickets for each of our 2021 sailings. There is an expectation that we will be able to resume selling to Shieldhall’s capacity (currently 220 persons) at some point in the future, though this will be based on Government advice. Once the reduced capacity levels are reached, enquirers will be directed to a waiting list, and contacted when and if circumstances change. If a cruise does not go ahead, all ticket holders will be offered a full refund or the opportunity to transfer their tickets to another sailing.

Underwater Agents

Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium
From: 17 Jul '21 09:20am -
To: 19 Sep '21 05:00pm

Did you know almost three quarters of the world’s surface is covered by water? But what lies beneath the deep blue seas. And what sounds can be found.

Between Saturday 17 July and Sunday 19 September, join the Underwater Agents for a journey below the surface of the world’s oceans in a brand new live science show. Grab your snorkels and help uncover the mysteries of the sounds that lurk beneath the deep. Discover how sound travels underwater. Learn why human ears aren’t great at picking up sounds under the surface. Find out what natural and man-made sounds might be found beneath the waves. And this wouldn’t be a Winchester Science Centre show without some explosive wow moments. Get set for awesome live science with fun audience participation and exciting demos.

And that’s not all there is to do at Winchester Science Centre over the summer months…

The days may be longer but in the Planetarium the night sky is always putting on a show. Blast into space for the family adventure of the summer in Solar System Adventure. With hundreds of moons, eight planets, five dwarf planets and one Sun to explore, where will the journey take you? And there’s not one but two 360⁰ fulldome subtitled film shows. Vladimir the polar bear and James the penguin are off exploring Earth and the Solar System in Polaris (17 July to 8 August). And Celeste and Moon are heading past our home to find out more about exoplanets, oceanic worlds and super-Earths in Beyond the Sun (9 August to 19 September).

Make the most of the warmer summer days, or embrace the unpredictable rainy British weather, with outdoor fun. In the nature-based Bio:Space zone, families can take part in exciting activities, both inside and outside. There’s also an outdoor adventure playground, trim trail and lots of space to enjoy a picnic surrounded by the stunning nature of the South Downs National Park.

Back inside, be wowed by the huge demos in Science Live and come on an exciting adventure through immersive exhibits. Zoom off on an out-of-this-world mission in the Explorer:Space zone and interact with the brand new sound, hearing and vibration exhibition. Venture into an enormous 10m long guitar. Experience the wonder of acoustics inside the sonic rocket. And climb inside a giant ear to explore its inner workings. Plus so much more!

Online Talk: Building Spitfires Without A Factory

SeaCity Museum
From: 28 Sep '21 07:00pm -
To: 28 Sep '21 08:00pm

Eighty one years ago, with the Battle of Britain being fought out over the summer skies of southern England, the Luftwaffe began targeting the aircraft factories, including the Supermarine Spitfire factory in Woolston. A plan to move production of RJ Mitchell’s iconic fighter from the Woolston and Itchen Works had already been begun some months before but now a complete dispersal was ordered.

This talk by Alan Matlock will explore the human story of those attacks from the point of view of those in the buildings or watching from across the town at the time and will also investigate some of the secret sites used to manufacture Spitfires in Southampton and beyond.

Please help support us by choosing how much you are happy to pay for this session. While all ticket buyers will receive the same level of service, your generosity would be a great help in making sure these events are affordable for all.

Clear instructions and details for how to log in to this talk will be emailed on purchase. Tickets are required for each device being used to access the event. Tickets are non-refundable, unless the event is cancelled by the organiser.
