Hampshire Archives and Local Studies and Wessex Film and Sound Archive offer an annual programme of talks, visits and film presentations for local groups in Hampshire.
For talks we ask for audiences of at least 30 people. Most talks are PowerPoint presentations and usually last between 45 minutes and an hour and will be delivered by one of our volunteers. Please note we cannot provide talks on the local history of a particular locality.
If your group consists of fewer than 20 people, you can book a visit on a weekday evening. Visits include a tour of Hampshire Record Office and an exhibition of archive treasures, and usually last an hour and a half.
Wessex Film and Sound Archive film presentations. Groups can choose from a selection of showreels containing archive film on a variety of local places and topics. Film presentations will be delivered by one of our volunteers.
