Welcome to the King Alfred Weekend 2023

October 20th – 22nd

The Hyde900 King Alfred Weekend is held annually to commemorate the anniversary of the King’s death on 26th October 899 which, this year, falls on a Thursday.

As the lay church for the Abbey, St Bartholomew’s has long marked the occasion. Since the Hyde Abbey 900th anniversary celebrations in 2010, Hyde900 has organised an annual programme celebrating the Hyde area history which we have uncovered – along with more contemporary events, including music, talks and walking tours conducted by a local expert.

This year’s King Alfred Weekend starts on a Friday, with Hyde900 hosting an evening of ‘Hyde: Past, Present & Future’. This is an opportunity for the community to get together over some wine and cheese.

Booking: we strongly advise that tickets are booked in advance.

Acknowledgements: Our thanks go to the Rector, PCC and community of St Bartholomew’s Church; Hampshire Cultural Trust; WARG; Friends of Hyde Abbey Garden; Adam Architecture; PCA; the staff of Winchester City Museum; Winchester Cathedral, and all the individuals who have contributed to this year’s events.
