Event description

Description

By: Rob Wake, Collections Facilitator (History), York Castle Museum

Who was Dr Kirk? Find out about the remarkable life and collections of the man who was inspired to create Britain’s first ‘living history’ museum.

This event is part of: Castle Gateway: Stories of Change

29th July, Eye of York

We invite you to join us for a series of events – with something for all ages – to explore the Castle area of York it as it was, as it is now and to imagine it differently.

The City of York Council is currently working towards regenerating this part of the city centre - which includes Fossgate, Walmgate, Piccadilly, Foss Basin and Castle area and Eye of York – and has a collaboration engagement project called My Castle Gateway, to involve lots of different people in this process.

As part of this we are running a series of public event to open up the Castle Gateway area.

Through taking part – and sharing your knowledge about the histories of the site and ideas for the future – you will informing the development of a collaborative ‘statement of significance’ and a collaborative ‘brief’ on which the Council-appointed masterplanners will then work.
