<p>Norwich Castle has always been a landmark of majesty and historical drama. This project will return the Castle’s iconic Norman Keep to its heyday as a royal palace. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>But this will be a palace for everyone. Reinstating the original medieval floor levels will make the Keep fully accessible to all. New displays and events will immerse visitors in the sights and sounds of the Castle’s royal heyday. Rare objects will also reveal fascinating stories of medieval life beyond the Castle’s walls. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>The result will bring to life one of Europe’s most important 12th century buildings at the heart of one of its most complete medieval cities. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>We’ve already raised over 90% of the £13.5 million needed for this exciting project through local and national grant-giving organisations including generous support of £9.2m from the National Lottery through the National Lottery Heritage Fund. &nbsp;Please help us raise £50,000 towards our target to ensure Norwich Castle ‘Keeps’ on giving and inspiring generations to come. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>£10 will help us develop exciting new events and schools programmes&nbsp;</p><p>£25 will help us conserve important historical artefacts&nbsp;</p><p>£50 will help us will help us create dynamic displays which engage all ages&nbsp;</p><p>£100 will help us recreate the Norman palace &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
