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!

Climb the Tower or Visit

Royal Victoria Country Park
From: 16 Apr '19 11:00am -
To: 31 Oct '19 03:30pm

Royal Victoria Country Park was once the site of the world’s largest hospital, now only the iconic chapel remains

The Royal Victoria Hospital was built in 1856 and served the British military for over a century. As the British Army’s first purpose built hospital, Royal Victoria was a unique and ambitious project which would help change the face of the medical world.

The chapel is all that remains of the quarter mile long hospital and is home to our interesting heritage exhibition which gives people the opportunity to learn all about the history of the military hospital and see photographs and relics from the site's fascinating past.

The Chapel conservation works

Lottery funded

Thanks to grants from Hampshire County Council and Heritage Lottery Funding, the Park’s historic buildings and heritage have been restored. The project included conservation work to the original façade of the chapel and the removal of the 1980 extension. There is a new pavilion to the side of the chapel with a kiosk, toilets and offices, providing facilities for the chapel to host music and cultural events in the evenings. Around the park are points of information explaining the size of the hospital and its historical significance.

The project was completed in the summer of 2018; the chapel now offers public access all year round, five days a week - including the tower and gallery.

Tower tours

The 150ft tower of the Royal Victoria Chapel is a historic landmark that has stood over Southampton Water since 1856. It offers breath-taking panoramic views across Royal Victoria Country Park, the Solent and beyond.

Now, following a major conservation project, you can climb the 109 steps to the top of the Tower and marvel at the spectacular views.

Thanks to the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, Hampshire County Council have completed a major conservation and restoration project which has seen the Royal Victoria Chapel returned to its Victorian splendour.

All income generated through Tower Visits support the running costs of the Royal Victoria Chapel.

Tropical Butterfly House

From: 14 Jun '19 10:00am -
To: 31 Oct '19 04:00pm

The Tropical Butterfly House is currently closed for the winter but will be open till 31st October.

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 underside of the leaves (especially the banana leaves).

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

Penguin Cove is likely to be one of your first stops on your visit! Ever the favourites - join our feathered friends at 3.30pm for feeding time and see their streamlined bodies in action as they zoom around their watery world. Lying below a rocky outcrop is a large deep pool with a pebbly beach and stream, and it’s here that you’ll find our noisy little Humboldt penguins bobbing up and down in the water; diving and generally having a great time. Venture into our underground cave and you can see them “fly” through the water with their perfectly adapted, streamlined bodies. Find out more in our daily talk and feed!

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.

Ivan Dutton: A life of motoring passion and achievement

Beaulieu
From: 19 Oct '19 07:30pm -
To: 19 Oct '19 11:30pm

Join us for an evening lecture on Saturday 19th October to discover the remarkable life and career of Ivan Dutton. 

Ivan Dutton's career in the motor trade began when, upon finishing his apprenticeship in pattern making, he joined the workshop of the Chequered Flag, quickly becoming foreman. During 1963 he started his own business and competed in his first motor race in a Mk1 Jaguar. This interest in motorsport led to Ivan becoming the British Production Saloon Car Champion in 1973, but the oil crisis of the late seventies ended his professional racing career. Enthusiasm for the Bugatti marque had been nurtured by his father, whose stories of Brooklands between the wars led to the formation of the Bugatti restoration company in 1979. Ivan's career in racing Bugatti's began in 1983 in a Type 51, followed by years of racing a succession of Type 35B models. With the arrival of the new millennium and Ivan's sixtieth birthday, he felt it was time to retire and pass the reins of the business, Ivan Dutton Ltd, to his son, Timothy. However, Ivan does not seem to have slowed down, he continues to enjoy a fine collection of cars and shows no signs of losing the passion!

The evening will commence at 7:30 pm in the Lecture Theatre of the National Motor Museum’s Collections Centre and finish at around 10.00 pm. A pay bar will be available in the Collections Centre for the purchase of beers, wines and soft drinks.

Please note The National Motor Museum will not be open at this event.

For further information and to purchase tickets please contact Theresa Browning on 01590 614792 or email theresa.browning@beaulieu.co.uk. Tickets will now be sent electronically where possible, so please provide an email address in any correspondence.
