Hythe Pier Heritage Day

The Hythe Pier Heritage Day builds on last year's successful event and will include:

  • Radio Solent's Richard Cartridge will be opening the event
  • Ask the Expert with Alan Titheridge author of 'Hythe Pier and Ferry - A History' who has a wealth of knowledge on everything connected to the Ferries and Pier
  • Family games from Victorian Times when the Pier was first opened
  • Ring Hotspur III's ships bell and see its historic wheel at the Hotspur Exhibition
  • Music at the entrance to the Pier from New Forest Brass Training Band 10.30-11.00, 11.30-12:.00, Rock Choir 1.00-1.30pm and Waterside Community Choir 3pm
  • Pop Up Cafe at the end of the Pier offering teas, coffees and delicious home-made cakes and great views over Southampton Water
  • A chance to tour the train workshop and understand how the Hythe Pier Railway has been kept running for nearly 100 years

The HPHA would like you to bring any photos you might have of the Pier and Ferry especially those of you who worked on the Pier or Ferries to share and reminisce with others and help extend our collection of archive material. (We won't take your original material, but may ask of we can copy anything you have)
