Ask ACT A Question

9 March 2017

We will be hosting four Community Drop In sessions at Bishop Auckland Town Hall between Friday 24 and Tuesday 27 March.

There, visitors will be able to call in at their convenience to find out more about the Trust, its Future Plans and the wider impact for the town.

This includes information about the construction work currently underway in partnership with local contractors, the opportunities for employment and skills development and the wide range of ways available to engage with local heritage.

Members of Auckland Castle Trust’s growing staff base will also be on hand to answer any additional questions and chat directly with everyone who attends.


Please call in and see us at the Town Hall during the following times:
Noon – 5pm Friday 24 March
10am-12.30pm Saturday 25 March
2pm – 6pm Monday March 26
10am – 3pm Tuesday 28 March

Anyone who is unable to attend but would still like to raise a query with Auckland Castle Trust is being asked to email, where they will receive a timely response.
