Memories of Alnwick Castle wanted as it celebrates 70 years of being open to the public
Memories and experiences of Alnwick Castle are wanted for a new exhibition.
The exhibition will help celebrate 70 years of the castle being open to the public.
The castle first opened its doors to visitors on May 3, 1950 with a staff of 14 men working under a retired police sergeant.
Together with The Alnwick Garden it now attracts around 800,000 visitors a year, although it is currently closed due to coronavirus. The Garden will reopen in July, it has been announced.
To mark the anniversary, it is putting together an exhibition detailing the memories and experiences of visitors, employees and those who have resided within the castle walls
over the years.
This might be as a part of the education establishments that have called Alnwick Castle home or visitors on a day out with family and friends.
Once complete the exhibition will go on display in the Admission Hall.
