Hampshire Archives Trust A.G.M. 23rd October 2021

Map Unavailable


The Hampshire Archives Trust are delighted to invite you to their Annual General Meeting to be held this year at the MUSA building in Winchester College by kind permission of the Headmaster.

The meeting will begin at 2.00p.m. and will be followed by tea at 3.00p.m. and from 3.45p.m. we are invited to visit the Treasury, to have a guided tour of the many wonderful artifacts collected and donated to the College over the many hundreds of years of its history. Depending on the numbers attending, this may mean us being divided into two groups. Although the Treasury is open to the public on a limited basis, this is an opportunity to have a Curator to talk us through the provenance of the artifacts, especially a new exhibition which will be opened just before our visit on Chinese Ceramics, donated to the College by Anthony de Boulay (1943-46).

Parking is extremely limited around the College, but we have been given permission to use the new Sports Field car park located on Kingsgate Street, free of charge and then access the College by turning left onto Kingsgate Street and entering the College grounds through the arch opposite Roman Road and along the path on the edge of Meads (the name of the field!) to MUSA. There will be signage and personnel to help direct you. There is also P&R to the Broadway and by walking through to College Street, you can enter the College through the main gate by the Porters Lodge who will be able to direct you to MUSA. This is the way we will leave the College grounds after our visit to the Treasury, it is then about a ½ mile walk back to the car park on Kingsgate Street. Sadly there is not any designated disabled parking closer to the venue. Guests should also be aware that there are 3 short broad flights of 8/9 steps to the venue and no lifts, but there are on site toilet facilities.

Naturally there is no charge for attending, but a bowl will be available for anyone who may wish to make a donation towards the cost of the tea.

This is a wonderful opportunity to visit one of the iconic venues of Hampshire, and to be able to walk amongst those ancient walls that are soaked in the history of England and that has produced so many of the men who have shaped our past is a privilege indeed.

Please confirm your attendance in advance via email or in writing.
