At the Friends’ Annual General Meeting on 20th April 2018, Christopher Pincher MP, on behalf of the Friends of Tamworth Castle and Museum, handed over a cheque for £10,000 to Louise Troman, the Castle’s Heritage and Visitor Services Manager (below). The cheque formed vital match funding for the Castle’s Heritage Lottery Fund bid for almost half a million pounds to be used to develop a “Battle and Tribute”-themed interactive display in the room that previously held the “Tamworth Story” display.
The displays in the re-developed gallery will include a permanent display of items from the Staffordshire Hoard, and will explore many exciting aspects of the Hoard, including themes of battle, Kingship and warrior culture in Anglo-Saxon Mercia.
This gift from the Friends was only made possible by the hard work of many of our members in our fund-raising efforts, including the organisation of events at the Castle and elsewhere, raffles, table and stall sales, and various social events.
