King Alfred Weekend 2022

October 20th – 23rd


 Come and join us for what promises to be an excellent weekend of celebration and remembrance of the times and legacy of this great King. Events will include talks, walks and – we hope – concerts. There will be an opportunity to catch up on the latest news and finds from the community digs of 21/22 and an update on the medieval glass found in 2020.

The weekend will end with the annual service in St Bartholomew’s Church, dedicated to King Alfred, and a procession to the Hyde Abbey Gardens to lay flowers on the grave markers of Alfred, his wife, Alswitha and his son Edward the Elder.

Bookings for separate events will be open in August; please keep an eye on the home page.
