Nevern Show

Friends speaking to people at Nevern Show 2022

Friends of Nevern Castle had a stand in the craft tent at Nevern Show on 10th August. Gaynor, Mike, Kath and Alan chatted to show goers about the castle.

The aim was to raise awareness of the existence of the site and the importance of the castle in the 12th century. We told visitors how the castle’s history, with its alternation between Norman and Welsh control, encapsulated that pivotal period in the history of Wales.

A surprising number of people said they’d lived in the area for many years but never visited the castle, or even known it was there.

We collected a dozen new members for the Friends mailing list.

We handed out this leaflet about our work.
