Tickets going fast!

About a third of our bookable events are now fully booked, and others are going fast. Unfortunately we are not able to increase the number of tickets already 'sold out' but we do have some fabulous alternatives:


57 - Peninsula Barracks.jpg

Architectural Tours

George Saumarez-Smith's tour of the Cathedral Inner Close and Huw Thomas's of Peninsula Barracks may be fully booked, but as of 18th August you can still book a place on the brilliant Design Engine's tour of the Gothic Chapel at University of Winchester, the Hampshire County Council historic buildings tours and the University of Winchester sustainable architectural tours.

Wine & Cider Tastings

It only took a few days for The Stable Cider Tasting event and Hattingley Valley wine talk and tasting to be fully booked with a waiting list.

However we do have a great alternative for you Pete Brown's 'From Orchard to Glass: The Magic of Cider' talk (& tasting). But be quick over 65% booked as of 18th August.
