Edition Fifteen: Christmas 2018

We love a Winchester Christmas and it’s no surprise that the city is regularly heralded as one of the best places to feel festive in the UK in the national press.

From the Christmas market and the cathedral services to seasonal events like Winchester Round Table’s sleigh tour and the Naomi House and Jacksplace Santa Fun Run around the city streets, Winchester has an extra buzz at this time of year.

This issue we meet Theatre Royal Winchester’s pantomime dame to find out more about the fun and frolics on stage in Beauty and the Beast. Dean Catherine Ogle from Winchester Cathedral shares a message of faith, and Big Issue seller Kev talks about what Christmas means to him.

Planning to go out celebrating? Then read our guide to the best places for Christmas parties, festive dining and New Year’s Eve.

If you’re looking for inspiration for buying presents or local food to wow guests with, check out our shopping and food guides, in which we’ve included lots of independent specialists.

They, like us, are really passionate about what they do and add to the character of the city we call home.

Next issue we will be going into our fifth year of publishing. We’re so grateful to all our advertisers for supporting us and wish them – and you – a very happy Christmas.
