ONE OF Stafford's landmarks opens for the summer season next week.
Stafford Castle will be rolling out a host of events throughout the summer months when the site fully opens on Wednesday.
People will be able to try on arms and armour in the Visitor’s Centre, view the keep and medieval tower, as well as take a walk around the woodland trail. And Sunday (April 6) will see the return of the popular Have a Go archery sessions.
The Castle is run by Stafford Borough Council and has dominated the local skyline for more than 900 years having been built on the orders of William the Conqueror. Throughout the season it plays host to a series of diverse activities such as a live music concert and classic car show. It also provides a dramatic backdrop to the annual outdoor Shakespeare Festival.
Admission to the Castle is free although people may be charged for some events and activities. The archery takes place on the first Sunday of every month from April until October from 11am-4pm and costs £1 for three arrows.
