New Heritage Live events with The Battlefields Trust

We’re pleased to be teaming up with UK charity The Battlefields Trust. Expert historians Julian Humphrys, Prof. Anne Curry, Dr Dan Spencer and Alan Turton will give talks at GHT as part of our Heritage Live programme.

The events relate to our curatorial theme for this year – GHT: Beside the Sea – which looks at God’s House Tower’s strategic location on Southampton’s iconic coastline.
