Artelia has been appointed by Nottingham Castle in the role of Project Manager to manage and deliver an amazing scheme that will bring to life its 1,000 amazing years history.
Following funding approval from the Heritage Lottery Fund, this project will involve carrying out conservation, redevelopment and re-interpretation of Nottingham Castle. It encompasses the group of heritage assets around the Castle including the caves below the Castle and Brewhouse Yard and contains three main themes;
1. Nottingham Castle – 1000 years of history
The changes being proposed will help bring to life the dramatic and amazing history of Nottingham Castle, from Norman fortress to Ducal Palace, exploring the cave system and helping people to understand the history of Nottingham, as well as Britain, in the context of the Castle.
2. Robin and the Rebels – Protest, Rebellion and the Rise of Democracy
This new interactive and participative gallery will enlist Robin Hood to lead visitors through the history of Nottingham and its Castle, exploring national and international issues around protest, rebellion and democracy, and bringing to life the story of Nottingham and its Castle in a new exciting, fun way that will appeal to everyone.
3. Creative City
The improvements to the current museum will enhance understanding of the Museum’s extensive and prestigious heritage and art collections
