Hello there!

Nottingham has a long, proud history of standing up to injustice and fighting back where it counts. We’re a principled lot!

While you’re all stuck indoors, Nottingham Castle Trust want you to get creative and represent your experiences or perspectives of activism, protest and rebellion in any artistic way you like. You can work alone or as a family. You might want to write a poem like our Engagement & Participation Officer Josh or you can draw a picture, sing a song, act a scene, share a photo, make a dance, create a protest banner or come up with something completely different.

We will feature our favourite entries in a regular highlights video and over the next few months we will collect all your entries to form part of a bigger project that will be hosted at Nottingham Castle when we reopen. There will even be a few special prizes for our overall favourites!

Please send your ideas to @nottmcastle with the hashtag #VoicesOfToday

We can’t wait to see what you come up with.



What's it all about

From the caves to the palace to Brewhouse Yard, the Nottingham Castle project will transform the entire site, re-establishing it as a focal point for civic pride and creating a world-class cultural destination at the heart of a regenerated Castle Quarter.

Discover the story of Medieval Nottingham and the city’s famous outlaw or the turbulent moments of riot and rebellion in its past. Explore the visual arts and heritage crafts of our creative city in newly refurbished galleries, including our new terrace gallery for internationally renowned touring work. Investigate the trails around the Castle’s grounds or go on an underground adventure in the caves.

Join us on your Nottingham Castle adventure from February 2021.
