Friends' Events, Visits and Other Special Activities

The next visit is being arranged for summer 2018 and details will be advised nearer the time.

The summer 2017 visit was a guided walk around the Abbey Quarter in Reading on 29th July with tea and cake afterwards in Pugin's St James's Church. A full report on the visit is in the September 2017 Newsletter.

In the past the Friends have organised the following one-off events:

  • We had a Social Evening and Skittles Match between the Friends of the Curtis and Willis Museums on Friday 7th April 2017 at the Golden Pot,
  • An exhibition entitled “Bronzes of the World” which ran for two months in the Museum’s Community Gallery.
  • The bi-annual Social Evening and Skittles Match against the Friends of the Curtis Museum which took place at the Anchor Inn in North Warnborough.
  • A Members' guided tour of the Wellington Statue and Royal Garrison Church at Aldershot.
  • The manning of Friends' Promotional Display Stands at the Centenary Open Day at All Saints Church in Basingstoke and the Hampshire Genealogical Society Open Day at the Everest Community Academy in Popley.
  • In 2016 Cathy Williams organised a Members' guided tour of Pamber Priory. Derek Anthony wrote an article describing the visit in the September 2016 Newsletter
