PLEASE SUPPORT US
Our vision is that Hartlebury Castle is, through careful stewardship, cherished, celebrated and understood, providing an unmissable experience that inspires, informs and delights all who visit.
To help prevent the spread of coronavirus, we are currently unable to open the Castle. As an independent charity, we rely on your entry fees, and any money you spend in the shop or the café to support our work. Being closed therefore has a significant impact on us.
We’ve seen visitors returning to Hartlebury Castle with their children and grandchildren, sharing the happy memories of previous visits and evoking nostalgic stories through our objects. Your help will allow us to continue to preserve over 1000 years of history and the stories of Worcestershire, so that the children visiting today, can return with their children in the future.
How you can help:
Make a Donation
Your donation, no matter how small, is a step towards supporting the Castle through these current times. Our work continues as we strive to provide interesting online content and plan fantastic events for the future. We look forward to being able to reopen our doors as soon as it is safe for our visitors, staff and volunteers. In the meantime, we are grateful for any support that you can give to support us. Thank you.

We are immensely grateful to the National Lottery Heritage Fund and to all our other funders for their contribution to help us create the visitor attraction you see today. Now, as an independent charity, we must be self-sufficient, generating enough annual income to cover the substantial costs of maintaining and running this wonderful heritage attraction.
When you donate to Hartlebury Castle you are directly contributing to the charity which is fighting to preserve it. Your donation helps us to keep the Castle open and look after its collections, so that visitors can learn its fascinating history and enjoy its peaceful grounds. Every penny goes towards maintaining and preserving this slice of history for future generations.
* Fundraising, payments and donations will be processed and administered by the National Funding Scheme, operating as DONATE, a charity registered in England and Wales (1149800) and Scotland (SC045106). In addition to any text donation, you will incur your standard network message charge (based on your service provider rates). For Terms & Conditions, see www.easydonate.org
Sponsor a flagstone
With a donation of £5 or more you can sponsor a flagstone in the Great Hall. Bookbinder, Rodney Hobbs has made a beautiful book in which our expert Calligrapher will write the sponsor’s name(s). Once complete the book will be on permanent display in the Castle. You will be able to visit and see your name, or the names of your loved one(s). The names will be there for years to come as a record of your generosity to Hartlebury Castle.
When building work on the Castle is complete in 2017 you will be invited to join us for a picnic in the Carriage Circle, followed by a celebratory photo of everyone standing on their flagstone in the Great Hall.
This is your opportunity to get involved and help us turn Hartlebury Castle into something really special. We couldn’t manage without our fantastic volunteers and we’re always looking for new people to join our friendly teams.
All you need is enthusiasm and a smile.
