CULTURAL AND SOCIAL ACTIVITIES

Rowlands Castle University of the Third Age
Meets monthly and has many subgroups.
See their webpage (click on the title line) for more details.

Rowlands Castle Historical Society
Meet monthly in the Parish Hall during the winter on Thursday evenings as arranged. We have about six lectures a year, several trips in the summer and the occasional exhibition. Subs are £8 a year. Guests at lectures are always welcome at £1.50. For enquiries and information, email history@rowlandscastle.com or contact Barbara Openshaw on 9241 2292.

Rowlands Castle Heritage Centre
This is a recent initiative to open a Village Museum to ‘protect the past, record the present and prepare for the future’. It was stimulated  by the offer of an iconic, award-winning model railway set on the Green showing the Village in the period leading up to the D-Day landings in 1944. The Centre has now purchased the model railway and is preparing to display it locally.
