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.

The season typically begins with a teddy bear themed display at Easter for Teddies Go Free weekend and an exhibition of local school pupils’ paintings usually takes place in 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 annual prize for the best body of work submitted by a school group visiting us. These examples are from past winner, 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.
