Current heritage projects
Throughout the year we run a number of special heritage themed projects and events for our community.
Here’s a selection of some of the things we’re currently working on.
Creative Interventions – Open Call for Artists
The Spring is offering a unique opportunity for artists from any discipline to receive £1000 to support the research and development of a bespoke creative project for our museum. If you’re a film maker, dancer, visual artist, theatre maker, writer, musician or other artist, join us to help us rethink our heritage offer and reimagine the interpretation of our community’s history.

Havant’s Gazebo Garden
Havant’s Gazebo Garden is an 18th Century gazebo building and garden in the Pallant car park in Havant.
Working in partnership with the Havant Civic Society we are currently applying for funding to re-invigorate this small public garden for community use. We plan to re-plant based on the original design and plants and develop and display information about the history of the garden.
Heritage Open Days and Museums at Night
Every year we welcome hundreds of people to our themed open days and Museums at Night events. They feature a variety of free activities and fun for all the family.
We hold an Open Day each Autumn and past themed have included the Tudors, St George’s Day, the Hayling Billy line and the Olympics.
Our Museums at Night events are linked to the National Museums at Night celebration and see us open until midnight. They take place in May each year and previous themes have included Ghosts in the Museum and VE Day: Let’s Party Like it’s 1945. Our Museums At Night event for 2016 took place on Friday 13 May with the theme 'The Dark Room'.
