Storming The Castle


Join Madame Parboiled as she follows the route of the 1831 Rioters through the streets of Nottingham. Hear how the People of Nottingham suffered, and were driven to the extreme measure of burning down Nottingham Castle. The Riot Act will be read, as it was in 1831, in an attempt to disperse the crowd. Discover the spirit of rebellion which has always been strong in Nottingham. 

Meeting at St. Peter's Church near Marks and Spencer's 7.30pm, touring through the city,before storming the castle.

The storming of the Castle is an annual event held on the 10th October but can be booked for a group at anytime.
