The third-size maquette of Licoricia of Winchester and Asser was collected from Ian Rank-Broadley’s studio last weekend. It is now ready for an unveiling which we expect to occur in London in early March.

St Peter’s Church, directly opposite the site where the Statue of Licoricia of Winchester will be standing, invited our trustee Danny Habel to update them on the project.
Over 40 people came to hear about Licoricia of Winchester and the Winchester Jewish Trail and to see a photo of the statue in situ.
We are very grateful to St Peter’s Catholic Church for their kind donation towards the Licoricia of Winchester Statue Appeal.
A visit to this site is recommended.
Dr Hannah Meyer delivered a fascinating talk on Licoricia of Winchester and the context of the time to an audience of over eighty people at the Discovery Centre on Saturday 15 September 2018. She showed how ‘Exploring Licoricia’s life, her business activities and her role as wife and mother gives us greater insight and understanding of the experiences of Anglo-Jewish women and of the Jewish community of thirteenth century England’, and stated that ‘Licoricia lived a full and fascinating life and it is fitting that she is being remembered today alongside the other exceptional women of Winchester’.
