Every year, WPS runs several special events with exceptional high-profile speakers. Because of high demand for places, these are often ticketed events. We also put tickets on general sale.
We don’t know when or even whether we will be able to resume our meetings in the Winchester Discovery Centre during the 2020-21 season.
For the time being, we are running an active programme of online events.
Our online events have been open to members only. But we are hoping to make some of them open to guests. Watch this website for more information on our programme and special events for 2020-21 as plans evolve.
