Changing lives through culture
Hampshire Cultural Trust is an independent charity, established in 2014 to promote Hampshire as a county that offers outstanding cultural experiences to both its residents and visitors.
From museums to galleries to arts centres, we manage 23 attractions across the county, welcoming over 740,000 people each year.
We run a huge variety of exhibitions, events, workshops, classes and projects for both young and old, in schools and in communities, with particular emphasis on reaching people who are vulnerable or disadvantaged and would not normally be able to access arts and culture. In addition, we care for 2.5 million objects that relate to Hampshire’s rich and internationally important cultural heritage.
Our charitable purpose is changing lives through culture. We are committed to achieving this even as the world adapts to a new normal.
In response to our 23 venues being closed due to the coronavirus crisis, we launched Culture on Call, a digital publication designed to bring culture and communities together during a challenging time. Now restrictions have eased, we're continuing to use this platform to bring you the very best of arts and culture from our venues and the Hampshire community.
