Big plans for Colchester Castle unveiled as £4.2 million redevelopment begins
8:00am Friday 4th January 2013 in News
A FULL scale burial reconstruction, an interactive hub, audio stories and replica objects for visitors to handle will form the centerpieces of a £4.2 million redevelopment of Colchester Castle, it has been revealed.
Colchester Castle Museum, set in Europe’s largest surviving Norman Keep, will close for more than a year from this Monday while it undergoes an ambitious transformation.
After being stripped of its content, the castle will temporarily reopen this spring for events including a beer festival, tours, a Medieval Day and a craft fair.
A year of work including repairs and the introduction of new displays will then take place before the museum opens in spring 2014.
