The Friends of Carisbrooke Castle Trust wound up as a legal entity on 31st December 2023.  The existing programme of Friends’ events will, however, continue to run until the end of March 2023.  

  • Tuesday 23rd January 7:00pm – Pub Quiz at the Eight Bells in Carisbrooke in aid of the Museum
  • Tuesday 20th February 2:30pm (note date and time change) – Nick Minns “Augustus Vernon Harcourt”
  • Wednesday 20th March 7:30pm – John Sole “The Newport Workhouse”.

In February 2024 the Museum, ably assisted by a group of fantastic volunteers, will be launching a new programme of Friends-style activities.  These will include a relaunched programme of regular talks, a series of new profile / fund raising events and a Museum Supporter’s scheme.   

Please note: because the Friends were a separate organisation, in order to comply with Data Protection law (GDPR) after 31st December the Museum will need new, direct consent to email them about the new arrangements.  So, if you would like to receive  details about how to get involved, the outline programme, and information about pricing and discounts,  please sign up to our new mailing list.
