Hunt for family to star in Castle ad campaign

Share this article

Alnwick Castle is searching for a local family to star in its advertising campaign this summer.

This is the first time the Castle has done anything like this and the winning family will not only win themselves a place in Alnwick Castle’s history, but also a day out and another free family ticket to the Castle, valid for 12 month.

The winning family will be invited to go and explore the Castle, where they will meet fire-eating, sword-juggling jesters, the Potter-inspired characters, the Castle’s own knights and princesses and the Northumberland dragon.

The Castle’s resident wizards will also teach the kids how to ride a broomstick and the family will take part in a range of medieval activities, as well as testing their knightly skills in Knight’s Quest.

To enter, all people have to do is send an email to with a family photo and a description (no more than 200 words) of one of their favourite family memories, along with their name, address and telephone number by Tuesday.

The winner will then be contacted via email and announced on the Castle’s Facebook and Twitter page.
