The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre
The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre is a small place where big things happen! Our vibrant cultural events and activities make Havant, Hampshire and the surrounding region a better place to live.
We bring cultural activities and artistic experiences to our community, creating wide and varied programmes that meet the needs and interests of the 120,000 residents of Havant Borough and attracts people from across Hampshire, Portsmouth, West Sussex and beyond.
To do this we’ve created five strands of work:
- Live events and film screenings
- Heritage exhibitions, collections, care and activities
- Participatory workshops, events and experiences
- “Beyond the Walls” outreach programme
- Cultural advice and support services
Our work take place both in our building and right across the borough of Havant. Our building is also a hub for the local community, with local groups using it as a meeting place and enjoying using our shop and cafe.
The Spring is one of the few integrated arts and heritage centres in the UK and we are a museum that is nationally accredited by Arts Council England. Our heritage collection and exhibitions increase the pride and sense of identity felt by our community by linking people with their local heritage and stories. We offer exciting, interactive, educational heritage experiences that celebrate and recognise what makes Havant special. We make the most of our integrated arts and heritage expertise to offer unique, high quality experiences that use the arts to bring heritage stories to life and use our knowledge of local heritage to inspire artists activity.
