A fascinating talk and tour of Hampshire’s historic costume collections at Chilcomb House.

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

Since 2014, the Hampshire Cultural Trust has been managing the museums services and collections owned by Hampshire County Council and Winchester City Council. 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.

Not suitable for those under 5 years. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
