Plots, protests and pressure groups feature in the Special Collections Gallery exhibition - from the Cato Street Conspiracy of 1820 to the work of the Women's Campaign for Soviet Jewry or student protests in the latter part of the 20th century. In the Level 4 Gallery the Trinity Art Group presents an intervention on the theme of protest. Trinity is a Winchester-based charity offering solutions, hope, choice and control to people experiencing the effects of homelessness or vulnerability.
