Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway Now Open

Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway
From: 11 Mar '18 10:00am -
To: 04 Nov '18 04:00pm

A visitor once described Exbury Gardens as ‘Heaven with the gates open’. It is a garden for people young and old, horticulturalist or enthusiastic gardener, or just a lover of beautiful places.

Lionel de Rothschild was a keen collector of plants and he was also a highly successful hybridiser of many different species and Exbury is still filled with his creations. This tradition has been continued by his descendants, Edmund and Leopold and his grandsons, Nicholas and Lionel who actively continue to develop the gardens to this day.

Lionel had several strands in his hybridisation programme but it was generally

dominated by a desire to produce increased hardiness, better flowers and improved flowering.

In the years that Lionel devoted to Exbury, he was innumerable crosses of which he kept only the best. His stud book records 1210 hybrids that he considered successful. He further analysed these and decided that 452 were worthy of being individually named and registered with the Royal Horticultural Society.

Subsequent generations have continued to hybridise and Rothschild crosses continue to grace the show benches of the RHS.

‘A truly fantastic day out. My wife and I were bowled over by the amazing spring colours of rhododendrons and azaleas and there was literally colour everywhere. There are beautiful areas to walk through as well as places to sit. We took a picnic in the hope of being able to sit by one of the ponds and were not disappointed – the reflections were as spectacular as the real thing! The next thing we want to do is return in the autumn to see the colours change as it must be beautiful’

David Parker, Christchurch

We March On:Southampton Football Club, Then and Now

SeaCity Museum
From: 29 Mar '18 10:00am -
To: 28 Oct '18 05:00pm

What goes on behind the scenes in the build up to a match? How is the club leading research to help prevent player injury? Which Southampton player introduced football to Brazil in 1894? And which player had the worst haircut in the 1980s?
Discover these things and a great deal more in a major exhibition about the Saints which will explore the club’s rich history and how it operates today to meet the challenges of Premier League Football. The club runs one of the country’s leading football academies and a state-of-the-art training facility at Staplewood, in the New Forest. The academy has produced many players who have gone on to play international football and become shining stars on the world stage.
Southampton Football Club has a strong spirit of community, with a legion of loyal fans, and has been an integral part of the City’s life since its foundation more than 130 years ago. The exhibition will chart the highs and lows, and provide an insight into life at the club through the supporters, ex-players and backroom staff.

RIVER CRUISE

Buckler's Hard
From: 30 Mar '18 10:30am -
To: 28 Oct '18 05:00pm

From Easter to October, take a tranquil cruise down the Beaulieu River – an unspoilt haven which is rich in history and wildlife.

A place of serenity and beauty… step aboard for a peaceful 30 minute boat trip along one of the few privately owned rivers in the world.

The river cruise is a great optional extra when booked in conjunction with your visit to Buckler's Hard.

DISCOVER HISTORY & WILDLIFE

Originally granted to the monks of Beaulieu Abbey by King John in 1204, the rights and responsibilities of caring for the Beaulieu River later passed to the Montagu family. Their careful ownership has created a river which is largely unspoilt and a haven for wildlife.

An engaging commentary will reveal the fascinating history of this unique river as well as the creatures that inhabits its riverbanks.

River Cruise at the end of Buckler's Hard highstreet

River cruises will operate daily between 30 March - 28 October 2018. The river cruise sails from the jetty at the bottom of the high street at the following times:

11.00, 11.45, 12.45, 13.30, 14.15, 15.00, 15.45, 16.30

During August only there is also a sailing at 17.15.

All sailings are subject to conditions of carriage.

Ticket information

Online river cruise tickets will go on sale on 15 March 2018.

Advance e-tickets will be valid for one trip during the 2018 season (30 March - 28 October). Please note you cannot pre-book a specific sailing time and you must buy your river cruise ticket online with an advance attraction ticket to benefit from the advance discount.

Adult £5.00 £4.50

The Tropical Butterfly House

New Forest Wildlife Park
From: 01 May '18 10:00am -
To: 31 Oct '18 04:30pm

The Tropical Butterfly House is open to end of October 2018.

In the pupae emerging box you can watch the pupa wiggle and move until the pupa split open to allow the adult butterfly to emerge. It takes many hours for its wings to dry and be ready to release into the butterfly house.

The exotic adult butterflies are colourful as they enjoy the warmth of the Tropical Butterfly House.

You may be lucky and see some butterfly eggs and/or caterpillars on the the underside of the leaves (especially the banana leaves).

Can you find one of the many stick insects in the butterfly house?

The Marlands Shopping Centre
From: 28 Jul '18 10:00am -
To: 29 Jan '20 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!

The Planets 2018

Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium
From: 30 Sep '18 06:30pm -
To: 30 Sep '18 09:00pm

Written out of a fascination with astrology, Holst’s The Planets was first performed 100 years ago. But what would it sound like if created today?

Inspired by modern astronomy and music, the adventurous Ligeti Quartet perform eight new planetary works, created especially for planetaria, by eight composers spanning contemporary classical, electronica to jazz. Exploring the domes’ unique design with live visuals, The Planets 2018 takes you on an astronomical journey into new music.

Music and science collide as composers Ayanna Witter Johnson, Deborah Pritchard, Laurence Crane, Mira Calix, Richard Bullen, Shiva Feshareki, Samuel Bordoli and Yazz Ahmed connect with astronomers to explore the modern science of our solar system. Taking inspiration from the latest explorations of Mars, Earth, Mercury, Saturn, Venus, Uranus, Jupiter and Neptune, sit back, look up and discover The Planets 2018.

A Live Music Sculpture event produced by Sound UK. Funded by Arts Council England National Lottery and RVW Trust.

There will also be a pre-concert talk by Professor Carl Murray who has been working with Yazz Ahmed on her five-minute piece inspired by Saturn.

Doors open at 6:30pm for a 7pm start. Drinks and light refreshments will be available from The Hub Café and licensed bar.
