PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION - now extended until Monday 18th September 2017


There has been so many exciting events at the Castle this year - I am sure many of you have captured special images that would look great in a Dover Castle Calendar 2018.

Please send in your images to  to be in with a chance of seeing your photos appearing in a Friends of Dover Castle 2018 Calendar.


For example - any WW2 inspirational shots, Castle at Night, Medieval Knights, Spectacular Joust, Castle Live, Throne Room, Dining Hall, Kings Chambers, the Church - something a little different, Castle in snow, the sheep - I am looking for quality images that are a little different but show off the Castle - if you have taken images during 2017 that you think would look great in a calendar, please send them in.   TERMS








I am pleased to advise members that we have been donated 20 copies of a new novel by American writer Elizabetta Holcomb who is currently publishing a series titled Dover's Amalgam, which are based around Dover Castle.  The first in the series is The Guardian. I now have copies of the sequel - Category Jeremy.   These have been advertised on Amazon at £8.95 each but I am able to offer these at £5 per copy to members on a first come, first served basis.  All proceeds will be spent at the Castle - towards projects enhancing the visitor experience.  To get your hands on a copy please email me - 






In partnership with Dover Youth Theatre, Dover Castle is hosting two performances during the evenings of Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd July at 7.30 pm.  It is essential you book for what promises to be a popular    event.  email to 

The Dover Youth Theatre put on an excellent performance at the Castle in April to celebrate the Queen's 90th Birthday - on a freezing cold and windy evening - hopefully this next performance will be warmer and less windy.  This is all part of the Fortress Dover project which we are actively supporting - the lead officer for this at the Castle is Anita Sedgewick - Community Events Co-ordinator.
