Look out for  the third Wessex Week coming to Malmesbury soon. 

The event was set up to replace the BBC History Magazine Weekend by local residents Barbara Pollard, Julia Bowen & Tony McAleavy.  

 

There are walks, talks, workshops, recitals, words and music, to suit all ages in venues around the town.  This year enjoy John Aubrey and Purcell, Thomas Hardy and Finzi as well as more Anglo Saxon life and times. The full programme can be viewed on our What's On page here.

See inside the White Lion as it probably was when Hannah Twynnoy worked there and hear about other eminent people connected with the town.

This year’s particular highlight is Janina Ramirez, BBC TV History presenter,  author and popular History speaker coming to Malmesbury Abbey on Thursday October 18th at 7.30.

Further details and tickets from Wessexweek.eventbrite.com or at Athelstan Museum. The profits from these events are going into a fundraising pot to erect a statue of Aethelstan, first King of All England in Birdcage Walk, subject to usual permissions.  16 local people who between them represent Malmesbury Abbey, Friends of Malmesbury Abbey, Malmesbury Town Council, the Town Team, The Civic Trust, History Society, Athelstan Museum and Residents Association have been working together over 18 months to consider suitable sites and agree the design process.

The project is reaching a most exciting period as Michael Wood, Tom Holland and Paul Hill as well as our own local expert on Anglo-Saxon armoury are offering their knowledge to inform the team.
