The Marlands Shopping Centre
From: 21 Jan '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!

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 -

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.

During August only there is also a sailing at 17.15.

All sailings are subject to conditions of carriage.

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.

Southampton Castle: A Ceremony in Stone

Southampton Castle has been a feature of the landscape of the town since the

11th century. The original wooden motte and bailey castle was rebuilt in stone and extended several times. It was visited by kings and raided by pirates. It fell into disuse in the 15th century as the defence of the town refocused on the walls, and was gradually encroached on by the townsfolk.

This exhibition explores the history of the castle, through archaeology, documentary evidence and the stone structures which survive today. It will also examine prehistoric and Saxon evidence from the castle area, and feature its Gothic re-invention in the age of Jane Austen.

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?

George Shaw: My Back to Nature

Southampton City Art Gallery
From: 04 May '18 10:00am -
To: 01 Sep '18 10:00am

This exhibition features over 50 paintings and drawings made by the artist George Shaw during his two year residency at the National Gallery.
With unrestricted access to the gallery and its collection Shaw was inspired to create new works that offer a contemporary response to the mythological landscapes painted by masters such as Titian, Poussin and Constable. Shaw is interested in how the stories in these paintings – often featuring violence, illicit sex and drunkenness – have parallels in the way that people might behave in the woods today, when they think they are unobserved. This is complemented by Shaw’s interest in Christian imagery, especially how landscape artists of the past often alluded to the Crucifixion in their depiction of trees.
Shown alongside the works by Shaw will be two paintings from the National Gallery’s Collection which served as inspiration during the residency.

Kelly Richardson: Pillars of Dawn

Southampton City Art Gallery
From: 25 May '18 10:00am -
To: 06 Oct '18 03:00pm

Taking cues from 19th-century painting, 20th-century cinema, and 21st-century planetary research, acclaimed Vancouver Island based artist Kelly Richardson crafts prints and videos that offer imaginative glimpses into the future which prompt a careful consideration of the present. For over a decade, Richardson has made works which speculate on what lies ahead given our current trajectory, often by imagining sublime, apocalyptic landscapes that have become inhospitable to humanity.

Exhibiting across two galleries, Pillars of Dawn presents us with a scenario seemingly from the near future, in which all of our points of orientation are placed in doubt. The works ask us not only ‘how did we get here?’ or ‘what have we done?’ but ‘what have we become?’ and ‘what can we do - collectively?’ For Richardson, there can be no more urgent a set of questions.

In The Footsteps of Titanic - Cruise Package

SeaCity Museum
From: 26 May '18 10:00am -
To: 26 May '18 04:00pm

'In the Footsteps of Titanic'. Spend a day in Southampton - on land and sea - exploring the maritime city's connections with the world's most famous ocean liner, the Titanic. Visit SeaCity Museum and explore the permanent Titanic Gallery, where some of the sights and sounds of 1912 Southampton are recreated. Hear how the disaster affected the lives of over 500 Southampton families; see artifacts from the ship and listen to the findings of the British Inquiry into the sinking in the recreated Court Room. 

Take a guided walk with a Southampton Guide through the city's Titanic Quarter, hearing tales of the crew and passengers, and seeing the many Titanic memorials and buildings associated with the liner, before boarding the SS Shieldhall for a cruise along Southampton Water. The Shieldhall is the country's oldest passenger-cargo steamship, with engineering connections to the Titanic. Your cruise will pass down Southampton Water, as the Titanic did on 10 April 1912, with a commentary pointing out the White Star Titanic berth. You are welcome to visit the Engine Room and Boiler Room on Shieldhall and also meet the Captain on the Bridge!.

* (If groups would like to book a Tour Manager to accompany them throughout the day, this can be made available at a cost of £165).

Refreshments: Available at extra cost at SeaCity Museum or on SS Shieldhall

Guided tour of Southampton’s Titanic Quarter lasts 1 3/4 hours (included in price).

SeaCity Museum is open from 10am daily. We would recommend the day commencing with a visit to SeaCity Museum, followed by the Guided Tour of Southampton’s Titanic Quarter, though these can be followed in any order. The day would finish with the SS Shieldhall Cruise, except for morning cruise on Sat 21st July.

Ticket information

2 hour cruises - £29.00

Common People

Southampton Common
From: 26 May '18 11:00am -
To: 28 May '18 12:00am

Set to bring you electrifying music, entertainment and arts in the heart of Southampton this spring bank holiday, Common People is back for 2018 with headliners Lily Allen and James on Saturday and The Jacksons on Sunday. For just £57.50 for an Adult weekend ticket or £30 for an Adult day ticket, you can enjoy an amazing festival brimful of singalong favourites, deep-down disco delights, and all manner of amusements. Don’t miss out on two joyful days of bank holiday merrymaking brought to you with love by the makers of Bestival, this 26 & 27 May on Southampton Common.

Rob da Bank says: “This will be our fourth year returning to the beautiful green escape of Southampton Common and it's been quite some ride putting together the Common People line up for 2018. Headlined by none other than Lily Allen and one of my favourite indie bands of all time James, the Saturday is a typically eclectic mash up of styles. Our Disco Day on the Sunday also promises to be super funky with The Jacksons bringing their disco and soul classics, but my personal highlight has to be Prince’s unbeatable backing band The New Power Generation coming over from the States for a one-off weekend with us. We couldn’t get Prince but we will have all the hits. Add in all the local Southampton bands and DJs and a real focus on family fun and entertainment and I promise you a magical May weekend awaits”.

Back with a bunch of bangers that prove she’s still at the top of the game, Lily Allen headlines the Common Stage, as well as Manchester legends James for a singalong Saturday special, with sets through the day from special guests All Saints, The Sherlocks, Jaguar Skills, The Cuban Brothers, Elvana: Elvis Fronted Nirvana and Plastic Mermaids.

While on Sunday fancy dress is a must as we unleash disco kings, The Jacksons, basking in the dazzling reflection of the World’s Largest Disco Ball. Plus you can fill your dancing boots with delights from The New Power Generation, Sparks, Boney M, Snap!, FooR, Jungle Brothers and Hak Baker.

Our new Carnival Stage will jump to the sounds of DJ Yoda, a $hit Disco takeover with HAAi, Kiwi, and much more on Saturday. With Sunday’s floor fillers courtesy of Fred V & Grafix, Holy Goof, Barely Legal and more.

As ever underground players and nascent rock action can be found on the Uncommon Stage hosted by The Joiners. Demob Happy, The Rising, The Collision, Deference, Pioneers and Miss Vincent will blast through Saturday’s slots. And Dream Wife, Pale Seas, Ben Goddard, Saints of Sin, Toreador, Josh Savage and Lauran Hibberd take on the Sunday crowds.

We’ll also have throbbing beats at Sugar Skulls with a roster of soon-to-be-announced DJs and family antics and festivities galore across our Southampton Common wonderland including the Kids Garden with Inflatable Church, Wall of Death, Big Fish Little Fish, Hampshire cricket, Kids Bushcraft, BigTopMania with Face painting, glitter, crazy inflatables, and have-a-go circus equipment including diablos, juggling, slackline & poi and circus performances. And we’ll have Alpacas, the Cardboard Castle, Haven Falconry, Punch & Judy, a giant sandpit, bouncy castle & inflatable slides and a Vintage Fun Fair with swing boats, helter skelter, chair o’ planes and big wheel.

The Great Solent Gin Festival – a brand new gin experience for Southampton set within its own garden space at Common People.

The official world record holder for the World’s Largest Disco Ball is coming to Southampton Common.

But that’s not all, we want you to join in the scintillating fun. So grab your glad rags, breakout those gleaming hipsters, burnished bell bottoms, and glittering jumpsuits and dress up to the nines in your spangliest dancefloor finery – fancy dress is a must for everyone on Sequin Sunday in Southampton.

Ensuring there really is something special for one and all, the Common People crew are super excited to announce two fantastic new additions to the line-up.

Head on down to Southampton Common and come to meet some real family favourites! We’ll all be snorting with laughter as the lovable Peppa Pig joins us to make personal appearances at various intervals throughout the day on Saturday 26th May.

The mischievous Peter Rabbit™ has also taken time out from escaping Mr McGregor’s garden to see his little fans, when he joins us at Common People to appear at intervals throughout Sunday 27th May.

Celebrating music, arts and community in the heart of the city, don’t miss out on the bank holiday shenanigans.

NB. this is a non-camping event.

Gates open at 10:30 each day
