The Castle wins!

It is with great pleasure that we can announce The Castle has won the “Contribution to the Environment and Circular Economy” Award at the Cornwall Heritage Awards Ceremony on Wednesday the 21st October 2020.

This was for how The Castle actively promotes environmental practices, spreading the word through public programmes with events such as Bude Earth Day and through conferences and talks.

The awards ceremony was due to have taken place on 26 March 2020, at the Royal Cornwall Showground Pavilion Centre, in what has been in recent years a fantastic event celebrating the achievements of the 70 plus museums in Cornwall.

This year due to the Coronavirus outbreak the event, unfortunately, had to be held online. Nevertheless, the event was a real success, Janine King, The Castles’ Heritage Officer attended the ceremony online and received the award.

This half term there is an extra special Where’s Wally? event taking place for the whole family to participate in, free entry and prizes to be won!
