Open Doors

We are Heritage and Culture in Newark and Sherwood. We’re delighted to have been awarded funding from Arts Council England to become a National Portfolio Organisation from April this year. Through our three-year programme, Open Doors, we aim to develop our understanding of the needs and interests of our communities, increase creative opportunities for young people and underserved groups and become a focal point for culture across Newark and Sherwood.

Take a look at what we're up to. Visit the National Civil War Centre to see our Artist in Residence in action or attend a free creative workshop.
