According to SWT engineering advance gen for May, every weekend

may bank holiday 29April-01May [all 3 days]
6/7 May
13/14 May
20/21 May
spring bank holiday 27/28/29 May [again all 3 days]

''... All lines will be closed all weekend in the Basingstoke area for
renewal of the signalling system. Weymouth services will run via an
alternative route with extended journey times. Other main line
services will be replaced by buses in the Basingstoke area. ...''

Several weekends of 442 diversions to be had.

Not that rare I know, but not often several weekends in a row like this.
