First Civil War Centre set to open in Nottinghamshire in 2015
Nottinghamshire is set to host the first Civil War Centre in the country from 2015, with a brand new attraction in the pipeline for Newark.
Work has recently begun on the new National Civil War Centre which will be hosted within the Old Magnus building, a grade II* listed property in Nottinghamshire’s historic market town. The development of the building will cost in the region of £5.4m, utilising augmented reality technology as well as housing unique artefacts from the period to tell the story of one of the largest conflicts in the country’s history.
Councillor Tony Roberts, MBE, Chair of Leisure and Environment Committee at Newark and Sherwood District Council in front of the Old Magnus Building in Newark, set for a £5.4m refurbishment to house the nation’s first dedicated National Civil War centre.
The Centre is expected to welcome 60,000 visitors a year when open. It will be the first of its kind, attracting visitors from around the UK as well as internationally to learn about the historic conflict that is sewn into the rich history of the country.
This new attraction will be a fantastic asset to the county and the UK as an entity, the museum is due to launch, in 2015.
