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.

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: Aspects of Southampton's LGBT History: uncovering a largely hidden past

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

Aspects of Southampton’s LGBT+ history: uncovering a largely hidden past.

LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans +) history is sometimes referred to as a hidden history. This is because so much history went unrecorded or was erased at a time when being lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans (LGBT) was seen as sinful, shameful and even criminal. It is only in very recent times, largely since the 1960s, that some people have made great efforts to record what was previously missing from many history books and archives.

Dr Clifford Williams has delved extensively into the archives to unearth some of Southampton’s LGBT+ history. Learn about the gay Southampton barber who ended up being recorded in a pamphlet written by a condemned man in 1750; hear about the year the city council welcomed the Campaign for Homosexual Equality Conference after other cities and towns refused them a venue; discover how, compared to Portsmouth and much of the UK, Southampton in the mid 1970s was generally a good place to be gay/lesbian. The talk will look at some of the documents and photographs associated with the city’s LGBT+ past.

Dr Clifford Williams is an author and researcher. His books include A history of women policing Hampshire and the Isle of Wight 1915-2016 (HCHS 2016) and Courage to Be: Organised gay youth in England 1967-1990 (The Book Guild Ltd. 2021 (forthcoming)). He is currently researching a book on policing gay and bisexual men 1950-2010.

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.

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.

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.
