Thinking Thursdays is a weekday initiative from Southampton City Council Cultural Services, exploring the rich history and heritage of the town. Each session is unique, but it could be a talk, tour or something entirely different!
St Michael’s Church is the oldest surviving building in Southampton and has been central to many of the incredible events in the city’s past. In this special guided tour, join volunteer steward, historian and town guide Geoff Watts in exploring the ins and outs of this incredible sacred space. From the Norman Conquest, to the terrifying French Raid of 1338 and the Second World War, this truly is one of the most important buildings in Southampton.
There will be outside elements of the tour and uneven floors, so please wear suitable footwear. The tour will begin in St Michael’s Square (outside Tudor House and near St Michael’s Church) and last 90 minutes.
Tickets are £8, £10 or £12 per person. Our prices are based on helping as many people to access our talks as possible. The more you choose to pay, the more people will be able to come and enjoy the same excellent programme of informative and entertaining talks. We thank you for any additional support you are able to offer us.
In the unlikely event of our having to cancel a session, we will offer a full refund. Unfortunately tickets are otherwise non-refundable. Please contact us if you wish to transfer your ticket to a friend if you cannot attend for any reason.
