Castle Keepers – £15,000 per year

Nottingham Castle is one of the most potent historical sites in Britain. The first version of the Castle was built by William the Conqueror in 1068, and ever since the Castle and the Castle Rock have been at the heart of Britain’s history through the dark days of King John, the legend of Robin Hood, the Civil War, protesting and sometimes rioting for justice, workers’ rights and universal suffrage.

Nottingham and Nottingham people have underpinned the development of the rights and responsibilities we hold as citizens today.

There have been many Keepers of the Castle including King John, Queen Isabella and the Dukes of Newcastle.

You could join them and benefit from:

  • Prominent recognition in the Castle site as a Founding Funder
  • One free gallery hire each year for corporate entertaining or staff events
