Friends of Dudley Castle Meetings and Coach Trips

These are meetings for members of The Friends of Dudley Castle and their guests only. Prospective members and guests are welcome, but will be asked to pay a small additional charge.

For meetings held in the Undercroft, access is via Fellows Gate, which will be opened at 7:25pm to allow all cars to go through at the same time.

Future meetings will be held on the last Thursday in each month as it is hoped that this will enable more people to attend and we extend an invitation both to members as well as other members of the public to attend.
