It was on the evening of Thursday 20th July 1989 that a group of people with a common interest in Dudley Castle met in the grounds of the Castle for the first time to set up the organisation which is now known as The Friends of Dudley Castle. Since then the Friends have always been committed to support and promote the Castle in every way possible, locally, nationally and internationally as a major treasure of British Heritage.
Since the time of the ‘dig’, various events have taken place enabling the Friends to raise funds to fulfil their mission statement. We are currently considering how best to use these funds for the permanent enhancement of the Castle. More details of this will appear on this page in due course.
The Friends of Dudley Castle believe Dudley Castle and its site to be of national geological, archaeological, historical and architectural importance with considerable educational value.
We are committed to support and promote it in every way possible locally, nationally and internationally as a major treasure of British Heritage.
We have monthly speaker meetings, on a variety of associated subjects, and coach outings, often to other castles. Members also receive two editions of the Friends’ magazine “Ramparts” each year. It was decided recently that we should try to show what members of the Friends get involved in at some of those meetings, so a further page has been added to illustrate just that. This can be found by, again, following the link just below this message.
