3 October 2019 Nottingham Castle Refurbishment – Cal Warren

Club welcomed Cal to give a talk on the refurbishment of Nottingham Castle, a site of strategic military importance since 1068, and known throughout the world and forever synonymous with a potent symbol of rebellion since the 12th Century. Cal, a Project team leader, illustrated her very interesting and informative talk with excellent photo shots and videos of the castle, its caves and grounds.  She described the £30 million project and "facelift" provided by a Heritage lottery grant as the castle reflecting the wealth of 1000 years of the castle's history, it's numerous collections together with the descriptions of the lives of the people of Nottingham - altogether a challenging and ambitious project. It is hoped that this world-class visitor’s centre would pump much money into the city's economy by attracting visitors from 9.5 million population within the East Midlands area. Cal described the new visitor's centre, increased access to Nottingham's famous caves and the "life" and adventures of the renowned Robin Hood, all a part of the project and the Club thanked her and with their best wishes hoped for its successful completion and looked forward to it's opening in February 2021.                  Mike T.
