​Hay Castle shortlisted for the Museum and Heritage Awards 2023

The regeneration of Hay Castle in Hay-on-Wye has made the shortlist for the Restoration and conservation project of the year, at the Museum and Heritage Awards 2023.

Sitting on the border of Wales and England at the centre of Hay-on-Wye, Hay Castle is a unique site comprising a Medieval Scheduled Ancient Monument, a Grade 1 listed Jacobean Mansion, intriguing Victorian outbuildings, and a cherished community green space. After the best part of 900 years in private ownership and a major conservation-led renovation project, Hay Castle is now held for public benefit for the first time in its history. Through conservation repair, contemporary design, interventions enhancing the connection between the castle to the town, and emphasis on quality of craftsmanship and materials throughout, Hay Castle has been brought back to life as a vibrant, world-class cultural hub for people, learning and the arts at the beating heart of the town, amid our beautiful, border country.

The winners will be announced at a live ceremony on Wednesday 10 May.
