Every year the Castle stages exhibitions based on its archive material and priceless contents, plus visiting work and themed displays to tie in with our events.

2017’s exhibition season began with a teddy bears picnic-themed display for Easter for Teddies Go Free weekend and an exhibition of local school pupils’ paintings is scheduled for the summer.

Local Schools Exhibition

from July onwards

Our annual exhibition of paintings, photographs and other work by local school groups following and inspired by their visits to Muncaster.

This included the winner of our 2017 prize for the best body of work submitted by a school group visiting us, Beckstone Primary School.

They went on a Dragon’s Tale educational tour where they used their imagination to travel back in time to a land of fairytales when knights were bold, princesses were rescued and dragons and eagles flew in these valleys.
