WARG organises talks, visits, field work and excavations in the local area. We are again holding our meetings at The Hampshire Records Office, Sussex Street, Winchester for 7:30pm start unless otherwise stated.

As the situation with venues is fluid, talks may be presented online via Zoom. Invitations to attend will be sent out to members about a week in advance. Our list below will state when the talk is online.

Please come back to this page for the latest news on the venue.
