BECK COMPLETES SUCCESSFUL VISITOR CENTRE FIT-OUT FOR NOTTINGHAM CASTLE DESPITE LOCKDOWN CHALLENGES
BECK was privileged to be selected as part of the project team involved in creating a world-class visitor experience at Nottingham Castle, to celebrate 1000 years of history. The castle sits at the heart of the Robin Hood legend, with historic caves to explore and exhibitions which inspire.
We were proud to be working closely once again with award winning Exhibition Designers, Casson Mann, to deliver the full fabrication and fit out for this project.
Our goal was to bring to life our client’s vision of transforming Nottingham Castle into one of the most significant heritage regeneration projects in the UK. The project converted the historic site into the region’s leading tourist destination and will continue the legacy of the local history of Nottingham, for many years to come.
The visitor centre is due to open in Summer 2021 and will reflect on the wealth of the castle’s history, the depth of its collections and the lives of the people of Nottingham.
Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in medieval Nottingham by exploring the castle’s grounds through the main tunnel and the newly built Robin Hood Gallery. Here they will be able to try their hand at interactive games such as archery and quarterstaff combat.
Five additional and insightful galleries are now located in the Ducal Palace where visitors will be able to learn about the some of the most turbulent and rebellious eras in Nottingham’s history and celebrate the development of local lace and craft industries.
Chris Lawrenson, Board Director at BECK says: “I am proud of our team’s proactive and dedicated approach to the Nottingham Castle Visitor’s Centre which has resulted in the successful delivery of this wonderful project, in the most challenging of circumstances. I’m also extremely appreciative of the support we received from Casson Mann and Nottingham City Council during the first lockdown period. BECK is honoured to have been part of a project which celebrates the rich history of Nottingham and its legendary folklore tales. From this Summer, locals and tourists alike will benefit from an exciting and immersive experience which brings history to life.”
