Nottingham Castle was the first public Museum and Art gallery outside of London in 1878. Since its inception it has been dependent on the generosity of philanthropists, private funders and the great public of Nottingham.

More recently, the local council has supported the Castle and this support will continue.

However, new galleries, new exhibitions and new activities have always required external funding from the public, from private funders and from philanthropists. The Caves to the Castle project is going to transform the Castle site and secure its place as a world-class attraction for the next 150 years.

The Caves to the Castle is your opportunity to get involved and be part of this exciting transformation by supporting the Castle. Individual supporters have the ability to make an important difference to what the Castle can achieve. There are many ways to help such as donating to the Castle or becoming a Founding Member.
