Closures

SEVERNDROOG GOES DIGITAL our doors might be closed but our commitment to our community continues 

Our vision for Severndroog Castle has always been to preserve the unique heritage of the building whilst providing a place of education, entertainment, relaxation and respite for the local community.  Whilst Covid 19 might have forced us to shut our doors, we are still committed to that vision. So keep your eyes peeled for our upcoming series of online events and exhibitions that will bring as much as possible of what you love about Severndroog into your living room as well as allowing you to delve deeper in to the history of the Tower than ever before. Whilst we are doing our best to adapt to these difficult times, the closure of the Castle has had a hugely detrimental impact on the income that is vital to sustaining Severndroog. We rely on visitors and events to provide the funding to keep the Castle open to the public and the current lockdown means we have lost those vital streams of revenue. If you can, please consider donating or becoming a supporter of the Castle to help save Severndroog and ensure the doors can re-open to the public in the future.   ​

CASTLE CLOSED until further notice due to coronavirus restrictions

 We want to thank everyone for your amazing support of Severndroog Castle during the current uncertainty caused by the Coronavirus outbreak. It is with sadness that we inform you that the Severndroog Castle Building Preservation Trust has taken the difficult decision to temporarily close Severndroog Castle to visitors from Friday the 20th of March 2020 until further notice, in order to avoid contributing to the spread of COVID-19. In addition, the health and wellbeing of all of our staff, volunteers and visitors is paramount and we feel it is not practical or responsible to continue. We will monitor the situation closely and hopefully we will welcome all our volunteers and our visitors back soon. The impact of COVID-19 is a critical threat to Severndroog, as it is to the livelihoods of almost everyone. Most of Severndroog’s funding comes from visitors, events, group/school visits and hires. Without these activities, the vast majority of our income is gone. If you would like to support us in this difficult time please join our NEW Supporters Group, volunteer your skills or donate to help keep us open for future generations. Find out more about how to support us at this critical time. We are determined to survive, to retain our small dedicated team, and to get the Castle back on track as soon as possible. We will be working on improving our online content and sharing our heritage and stories on social media with you while our doors are closed, so watch this space for some new and improved digital content. Our part-time staff will continue to work from home and can be contacted via our website www.severndroogcastle.org.uk. We will continue to open for small, intimate private hires until the government advice changes. Until we open the doors once again, take care and stay safe. Thank you all for your much appreciated support and help!
