THE FINAL show by artists who have been working in one of the city’s most historic buildings is set to open later this month.

The group,“GHT: A Reincarnation”, received a £50,000 grant to make work based on Southampton’s former jail, Winkle Street’s God’s House Tower.

Along the way they have also been making work based on the renovation of the building – set become an arts and heritage centre.
