Hyde900 had an exciting and successful 2020, despite all the restrictions.

After a lot of work by the volunteers on the committee and many willing helpers on the event days we were able to take part in the Winchester Heritage Open Day festival in the summer.

The King Alfred weekend and community dig went ahead in the autumn and despite the rain, was bigger and better than before.

King Alfred Weekend 2019

datePosted on 10:08, September 10th, 2019 by Website Admin

The Hyde900 King Alfred Weekend is held annually as close as possible to the anniversary of the King’s death on 26th October 899, which this year falls on a Saturday. St Bartholomew’s has long commemorated the occasion, but since the Hyde Abbey 900th anniversary celebrations in 2010, Hyde900 has organised a programme celebrating the Hyde area, both the history ancient and more recent that we have been uncovering, plus more contemporary events including music and the visual arts.

This year’s weekend starts as usual with the annual Hyde900 King Alfred Lecture, and includes the last event for the Hyde Soldiers WW1 project which will conclude this year on Sunday November 10th, more from research on the County Bridewell which stood on the Abbey site for part of the 18th and 19th centuries, and an opportunity to discuss how the Abbey Gateway (apart from St Bartholomew’s, the only remaining Abbey building still standing) might be better cared for and presented.
