D2N2-backed Nottingham Castle unveils new brand

Nottingham Castle Trust has unveiled the Castle’s new brand in preparation for the reopening of the historic tourist site in spring 2021.

The new logo highlights the Ts in “Nottingham”, which are modelled around the Castle’s arrow slits.

The new logo also features Nottingham’s favourite rebel, Robin Hood, with his emblematic bow and arrow.

The branding also features an exciting new colourway to pull the fresh look together.

This announcement is the first of many leading up to the Castle’s reopening in Spring 2021.

The castle’s brand-new website will launch within the next few weeks, revealing lots of new details about what can be expected from the heritage site when it reopens.

Tickets will go on sale giving local residents the opportunity to see what is being dubbed the “castle of curious rebels”.

CEO of Nottingham Castle Trust, Sara Blair-Manning said: “We are thrilled to announce our new brand, and to take this first step on the road to reopening and establishing the Castle as a world-class cultural destination.”

“We’ve loved being able to involve local residents in the announcement: they will be able to engage with all of our announcements until we can welcome them back to the Castle itself in Spring next year.”

D2N2 has awarded £7million of funding towards the redevelopment of the Castle with £5m coming from the organisation’s Local Growth Fund allocation and £2m from Enterprise Zone business rates income.

The programme of works includes the construction of the new Visitor Centre and the redeveloping Ducal Palace, the Grounds, and the sprawling cave systems hidden within the Castle Rock.

The project will also fund the renovation of the Castle building to create a new Robin and the Rebels themed visitor attraction, creating new jobs and attracting new visitors to Nottingham and the D2N2 area.
