‘Living with Historic Buildings’ is aimed at anyone interested in the historic built environment.
You can attend the event in-person at the museum, or register to watch a livestream of the event.
This event is part of Norwich Castle: Royal Palace Reborn, a major £13.5m project to transform the castle’s iconic Norman Keep, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
‘Living with Historic Buildings’ is a one-day symposium exploring current best practice relating to the care and use of historic buildings. Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery and The Norwich Society have drawn together an expert panel of those working with a broad range of heritage sites.
In a wide-ranging and stimulating discussion we will explore strategic approaches to the care and use of such structures, repairs and conservation and the incorporation of contemporary architectural features.

- Vanessa Trevelyan, former Head of Norfolk Museums Service and Chair of the Norwich Society
