Christopher Pincher, MP for Tamworth, has thrown his support behind the Friends of Tamworth Castle who this year are celebrating their 50th anniversary.
To recognise this anniversary, the charity is hosting a range of events open to the public including a balloon race, a 60s evening and a Tudor banquet.
The Friends also run an extensive range of talks so that local residents can learn more about Tamworth's rich heritage from local historians. Upcoming talks cover topics from Richard the third to Lawrence of Arabia, and are open to anyone with an interest.
Mr Pincher commented;
"The charity represent a strong piece of heritage in our historic town and I am proud to support them in any way I can. I hope that residents will take this opportunity to learn more about the roots of Tamworth by supporting and engaging with the events and resources the Friends have to offer. I personally am looking forward to taking part in the Friends of Tamworth Castle and Museum balloon race this July. "
