Exhibition opens on Saturday 10th September until Saturday 22nd October

In partnership with Eastleigh Pride, take a journey through 70 years of LGBTQ+ stories in our local area with this new exhibition.

Curated by local artist Amber Weyman, A Gay Ol' Time is an exhibition and collection of stories from Eastleigh’s LGBTQ+ community, as an alternative way of observing the 70 years of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.


Tickets: FREE, no need to book


Ahead of the launch of A Gay Ol' Time, we’re running FREE intergenerational workshops to bring people together, share experiences, and explore the joys and the hurdles of the last 70 years.

Join us at our summer sessions, all lead by non-binary artist Amber Weyman:

Social Sharing Workshop (ages 16+)

Help us creatively map out the last 70 years by sharing stories and reflecting together through enjoyable activities.

Walk, Push and Stroll (ages 18+)
Saturday 30 July, 2 - 4pm at Itchen Valley Country Park

Enjoy a gently paced turn around Itchen Valley Country Park, soak up the sun (fingers crossed) and chat with us about our community and how it’s changed. Picnics optional!

Move and Create Workshop (ages 16+)
Thursday 4 August, 6:30 - 8:30pm at The Point, Eastleigh
