King John’s Circle is our highest level benefactor group. Members enjoy an annual King John’s dinner in the Museum and private previews to our new exhibitions programme.

In becoming a Benefactor you enjoy exclusive access to our collections, curators and the Museum and Gallery’s dynamic exhibition programme. Support from our Benefactors will make a vital contribution to the redevelopment of the Castle and ensure a lasting legacy for Nottingham.

As part of King John’s Circle, our Benefactors will get permanent recognition on an exclusive funder’s plaque in the main entrance to the Castle.

Benefactors enjoy:

  • Invitations to an exclusive programme of Benefactor events that include special curator-led tours of our temporary exhibitions and opportunities to explore specific works of art and objects in the Castle’s Permanent Collection
  • Access to join the Directors at the annual King John’s Dinner in the Castle
  • The opportunity to participate in the Castle’s bespoke curator-led art tour
  • Behind-the-scenes visits to external collections and private tours of exhibitions at other cultural organisations in the area
