This is a unique chance to peek behind-the-scenes and meet the team who manage the collections cared for by Hampshire Cultural Trust.

Heritage Open Days provide the ideal opportunity for members of the public to go behind the scenes and see first-hand the invaluable work the Trust does with both the Hampshire’s and Winchester’s collections.
