How Heritage Lottery Funding helped revitalise Nottingham Castle

The Nottingham Castle redevelopment won Heritage Lottery Fund backing in 2014. The £12.9 million earmarked funding from the HLF included a development grant of £600,000 to take forward the plans to redevelop Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery as a major heritage attraction offering fun and excitement for all the family and becoming a nationally significant centre for learning about protest and rebellion.
