Welcome to the first post from the Nottingham Castle Trust!

There are so many changes and transformations happening around the Castle at the moment that we thought we'd give you a little update on what we've done over the past few months!

- Leonardo Da Vinci

The Castle is proud to announce that one of the exhibitions from Her Majesties Royal Collection in London has been welcomed in to Nottingham Castle.

This collection of ten sketches from Leonardo da Vinci’s personal notebooks was launched at an exclusive event at the end of July and has been visited by so many visitors and tourists from the city; the opening weekend even managed to draw in over 2500 excited art viewers!

The exhibit has been accompanied by a series of ‘da Vinci’ themed events and entertainments, from the children’s Leonardoodle workshop to the popular feline life drawing evening at the Kitty Cafe, and have been a big hit for the Castle this summer!

- Website

We’ve also made a lot of changes to the Nottingham Castle Trust website over the past few months thanks to the help of our web designers Big Spring and intern Nikki McCaig.

Our site now holds press releases from some of our biggest events, a gallery of photographs from Castle developments, monthly newsletters on the transformation of the Castle, as well as our blog on the exciting behind the scenes secrets of what we do and the big changes we’re implementing!

- Funding

CEO of the Trust, Heather Mayfield, was recently involved in putting together our Stage II bid for Heritage Lottery Funding in an attempt to support the transformations happening across the Castle grounds.

On our second attempt to win funding, so much work has been put into making this project as tourist-friendly and exciting as possible, with new exhibits, interactive games and drastic re-developments of the Castle layout itself, to hopefully secure this grant!

We would love to turn our castle into the world-class attraction we know it can be, and the Trust is working so hard right now to make that happen – so fingers crossed!

To catch up on what else we get up to you can follow us on all of our social media for more Castle updates and information!
