An Evening in the War Cloister – Thursday 30 May – SOLD OUT – please call the office to be added to the waiting list

Recently awarded Grade 1 listed status, the Winchester College War Cloister is said by some to be the most magnificent in the land. David Fellowes, Old Wykehamist, will talk about the extraordinary lengths taken to create a memorial for the many who died.

Dr Brian M Collins—”Thomas Wolsey & Stephen Gardiner—Bishops or Bureaucrats?” – Wednesday 12 June, 7 for 7.30 – SOLD OUT – please call the office to be added to the waiting list

The successive Bishops of Winchester both worked intimately with Henry VIII – Wolsey before the divorce from Katherine of Aragon and Gardiner after the break with Rome. But why did Wolsey drain the coffers of Winchester and was Gardiner really the best lawyer in England?”
