The Open in the future
In November 2016, Nottingham Castle was successful in securing major capital redevelopment funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. This vital funding will transform the building into a new and exciting phase in the Museum’s long history, moreover being an exciting time for both the Nottingham Castle Open and the Castle. As the galleries, building and site will be in transience until the grand reopening in 2020, the Open will take a short break - as it has done many times in the past (see our History section)– but we hope it will come back with renewed energy and vigour sometime in the near future.
