Public lectures, seminars, workshops and festivals

Mostly free and always fascinating, we offer a wide range of public engagement events throughout the year. Our academics work with local partners such as the Winchester Science Centre, and we host high-profile national events such as the annual Peacejam UK, to name but a few.

We have a wealth of knowledge about the local and regional history, and our academics feature prominently in local annual festivals such as the BBC History Weekend. This year, our annual participation in the Winchester Heritage Open Days is extra special as it has been largely led and coordinated by students on the MA Cultural Heritage and Resource Management (CHaRM), as part of their course. And with virtual being the new normal, students and academics have risen to the challenge, with a cornucopia of podcasts, virtual walking tours, interviews and webinars launching between 11 and 20 Sept.

On Saturday 10 November 2018 the University commemorated the 115 fallen World War I soldiers who are buried in Winchester's historic West Hill Cemetery. A ceremony took place at the Cross of Sacrifice attended by University, local council, church and military representatives. Afterwards the names of all the 115 men were displayed at the University, which also hosted a programme of talks and an exhibition on the cemetery.
