GUY KREMER – INTERVIEWED BY ROSE BURNS

Thursday 7th July 7.00 – 9.00

Winchester Rugby Club

Guy Kremer has a French provenance, English heritage, and an international reputation. His unmistakable style of hairdressing – distinctive, elegant and

chic – is loved by his clients and admired by fellow professionals worldwide. Guy is regularly honoured with awards from both the hairdressing and fashion industries. He has been awarded the Fellowship of British Hairdressing’s UK Hairdresser of the Year twice and voted Southern Stylist of the Year for three consecutive years. These and many other awards secured his induction into the British Hairdressing Awards’ Hall of Fame, alongside names such as John Frieda and Trevor Sorbie.

It has always been very important to Guy that he uses his hairdressing skills and creativity to do good by helping others and supporting local and national charities. Throughout the year Guy regularly hosts or stages numerous UK fund-raising events to assist children’s cancer charities and other child-related deserving causes. Hyde900 is delighted to have this opportunity to introduce, your new neighbour.

Courtesy of the Hampshire Cultural Trust the ever-popular medieval tile making will also be taking place in the City Museum over the festival. Tile makers of all ages will be able to make their own replicas of tiles found on the site of Hyde Abbey and for a small fee they can have their efforts fired and glazed.

Booking for tile making is strongly recommended. Be prepared to get your hands dirty! BOOK HERE!


Community Dig

August 18th – 21st, 09.00 – 17.00

Hyde, Winchester

Once again Hyde900 will be putting on their annual community dig on the site of Hyde Abbey, the final resting place of Alfred the Great. Previous digs have uncovered the remains of the Abbey church and cloisters in the gardens of residents, who live in what was the Inner Close of the Abbey. In the past finds have included materials from the construction of the Abbey, which was largely destroyed in the years following the Dissolution of the Monasteries. The dig is open to all, aged 5 and upwards who can take part in 2-hour sessions.

Those interested in taking part can register their interest HERE

Despite being the burial place of Alfred the Great, the nave of the huge church under the gardens of Hyde has never been found. Over 80 metres long, it has remained hidden beneath the houses, gardens and roads in Hyde. The recent Hyde900 dig has now located the north wall for the first time, only some 80cm below the garden of 6, King Alfred Place.
