From: 28 Jul '18 10:00am -
To: 31 Jan '21 04:30pm

As a centre we are aim is to help the community we serve in anyway possible. Management and retailers have recently undertaken an amazing awareness training session by a Dementia Friends Champion to help us understand some of the challenges faced by people who are living with dementia, autism or other sensory issues whilst shopping with us. 

With this in mind we have introduced Sensory Sundays every last Sunday in each month. 

These changes  we have introduced such as requesting the stores reduce the volume of their music and security/cleaning staff to be available to assist wherever possible. We really hope that this will help make a difference and be more inclusive. Very much like to involve our community as a focus group, to feedback any of the issues they find which makes shopping a challenge. If you would like to be involved in this please contact us for more information. 

This will be every Sunday throughout the year!

KINGS & SCRIBES: THE BIRTH OF A NATION

Winchester Cathedral
From: 01 Oct '19 09:00am -
To: 01 Jan '21 05:00pm
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.

John Hitchens: Aspects of Landscape

Southampton City Art Gallery
From: 13 Mar '20 10:00am -
To: 27 Jun '20 05:00pm

Aspects of Landscape showcases work by John Hitchens, created over a period of more than five decades.

The exhibition will trace the artists’ journey from early descriptive paintings to increasingly abstract ways of interpreting landscape, reducing its forms to lines, circles and patterns. In his recent paintings the artist has developed his own visual language which sets it apart from conventional abstract painting. 

This development was greatly influenced by a period spent photographing landscape elements from the air, which enabled Hitchens to gain an awareness of the land as a two-dimensional composition. This is the first time such a complete overview of his work will be seen in one exhibition, including work that has never been shown in public before.

John Hitchens is one of four generations of artists in his family, both his grandfather Alfred Hitchens and his father Ivon Hitchens were also painters of landscapes. His son, Simon is a sculptor. A number of Ivon Hitchens’ paintings are held in the Gallery’s art collection.

From: 23 Mar '20 08:00am -

Following Government advice, we have taken the very difficult decision to close the Beaulieu visitor attraction until further notice. We believe that this is the only suitable course of action, following the Prime Minister's latest guidelines on social distancing.

Our priority continues to be safeguarding the wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers. We are supporting the measures to help beat coronavirus (Covid-19 ), so we can look forward to welcoming you back to Beaulieu later in the year.

Advance attraction ticket holders who haven't yet visited, but have tickets due to expire before the end of June will be contacted with further details next week.

Please continue to check our website and social media for updates and interesting conversation from the National Motor Museum and the rest of the Beaulieu attraction. To help entertain the children, we will be posting fun family activities - so join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Our event programme was due to start on April 5th with Simply Aston Martin. Please bear with us while we consider rearranging our earliest events for later in the year. Ticket holders will be the first to know and we will post news on our website, so please do not call the events team in the meantime.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you and your families safe and well, later in the year.

Marwell Zoo CLOSED until Further Notice

Marwell Zoo
From: 23 Mar '20 08:00am -
To: 30 Apr '20 05:00pm

20 March 2020 – **UPDATED AT 19.00 HRS**

Following the very latest government advice regarding Coronavirus (issued by the Prime Minister on Friday 20th March at 17.00hrs), we have taken the necessary decision to temporarily close Marwell Zoo, with immediate effect.

We fully support the government’s latest measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 by limiting social contact, and whilst we have 140-acres of open space to enjoy, we also have many areas where close contact is unavoidable. We therefore feel this is the only and correct course of action available to us in order to limit social interaction in line with the clear recommendations laid out by the Prime Minister.

We know this will be disappointing news, particularly to those who have planned a visit, but as a responsible tourist attraction and conservation charity, we believe that a temporary closure is in the best interests of the health, safety and wellbeing of all of our guests, staff and volunteers.

We would like to reassure you that the health and welfare of our animals in our care will not be compromised by this decision. Our doors will be closed to the public, however a team of committed and experienced keepers and staff will remain on duty.

Information for Guests/Members

We kindly ask that you do not call the zoo. Please, give us a few days and we will update our website and social channels as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience and we hope you support our decision.

How to keep in touch with the zoo

If you still want to see some of our amazing animals, then please check out our live webcams.

We also offer free downloadable education resources and activity sheets available from the ‘Education’ section of our website. Click on the ‘FREE RESOURCES’ tab.

All our printable support materials are linked to the national curriculum and are specifically designed for a variety of ages. You can choose from a selection of engaging learning activities for all key stages (from EYFS to A-Level). Whether you want to learn more about our amazing animals, their adaptations or conservation - we have it all!

Statement from Forestry England: Access to the New Forest

This weekend, right across the country we have seen large numbers of people visiting public outdoor spaces, and it has not always being able to achieve social distancing. Covid-19 means that this is a threat to people’s health.

Our priority is to keep the public and our staff safe and as a result we are in the process of closing all main car parks in the New Forest from today. The car parks affected are those at Bolderwood, Wilverley, Blackwater, Whitefield Moor, Anderwood, Hatchet Pond and New Forest Reptile Centre. All of our public facilities within the New Forest are already closed including public toilets, visitor cabins, and BBQ facilities. Campsites are also closed and we would like to remind people that wild camping is illegal anywhere on the New Forest or in its car parks.

Smaller car parks in the Forest remain open for now. We have taken the decision not to close these for several reasons. We are concerned that closures would lead to large amounts of parking on verges and open ground causing real and irreversible damage to the landscape. Parking at locations away from the network of tracks would also lead to large numbers of people walking across the open forest putting wildlife at huge risk, particularly as it’s the start of the ground nesting bird season in these areas.

We will keep the situation under constant review and may close all car parks with immediate effect if the government’s guidelines on social distancing are not being adhered to or if the advice from Public Health England changes. Local people still have access to the countryside but we ask everyone to ensure they follow government guidance on avoiding all non-essential travel and social distancing to help restrict the spread of coronavirus.

22 March

We ask people to please follow Government guidance around social distancing and non essential travel.

All Camping in the Forest campsites are now closed.

Stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.

17 March

In line with Government advice, our reception is now closed and all events and meetings are cancelled or postponed.

However we can be contacted via email and phone.

We are aiming to process planning applications which have already been submitted and if you are submitting a new application, we are reviewing the services we will be able to deliver.

From: 23 Mar '20 09:00am -
To: 30 Jun '20 05:00pm

COVID-19 Update - May & June Sailings Cancelled

Shieldhall is sorry to confirm that its planned sailings for the months of May and June 2020 have had to be cancelled with the ongoing uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic. Shieldhall was due to enter Dry Dock in April, but this journey has been postponed until later in the year. We hope conditions will allow us to continue with sailings during the summer, with a possible extension of the sailing programme beyond our current scheduled end date of September 13.

All ticket holders for our sailings in May and June will be contacted via email, and offered the options of switching their tickets to a sailing later in the year; holding their ticket money as a credit for 2021 sailings; making a donation to Shieldhall to allow the charity to best continue its work, or a refund.

With her winter maintenance programme all but complete, Shieldhall is set to celebrate her 65th birthday this year, looking to give passengers the opportunity to experience the magic of ‘steam at sea’. Our volunteer crew – many of whom are aged 70 years and upwards - are disappointed but understanding of the challenges we all face at this time. There is a ready commitment to maintaining Shieldhall so that we can resume her programme when conditions improve. We will look to keep our members and supporters updated with news via the Shieldhall website www.ss-shieldhall.co.uk, emails and social media.

We encourage everyone to keep up to date with the current Government & NHS advice and guidelines around Coronavirus by visiting the following link: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19

Thank you for your understanding, patience and ongoing support which means so much to the charity. Stay safe and we hope to see you on board later in the year.

Meantime, if you have any questions or concerns please contact us at tickets@ss-shieldhall.co.uk
