©  Floodlighting

Abergavenny Castle and Keep are floodlit from the beginning of September to the end of May by a scheme installed and financed by Abergavenny Local History Society. You are invited to sponsor the floodlighting for a chosen week at a cost of £10 for the week or £40 for a month. You can sponsor the floodlighting to celebrate an event such as an anniversary, the birth of a child, an examination success, or in memory of someone. Or you can make a donation simply because you enjoy seeing the Castle lit up in the evenings.

A card and commemorative certificate can be sent to you or directly to the recipient just before the chosen week. Your message can, if you choose, be shown on the 'Notices' Powerpoint at the start of the month's lecture and/or on this page.

The Castle is floodlit between 7.30pm. and 11pm. The floodlights are below the South West tower and the Museum and so the full effect is best seen from the Castle Meadows, or from the Heads of the Valleys road as it bypasses the town. You can see the tower from the corner of the Castle Street car park, just behind the Angel Hotel.

If you would like to sponsor a week of floodlighting please download a form here - Floodlighting Sponsorship.pdf . You will find the Floodlighting Secretary in the foyer of the Borough Theatre before the start of our monthly lectures, or you can email us at alhs@live.co.uk.           

We ask for your name, address, and telephone number or email address, plus, if you are making a dedication, the name of the recipient together with any message, for example 'David Roberts, on his fiftieth birthday' together with the date required. (The week sponsored starts from a Sunday) The cost is £10 for one week. Cheques to be made payable to 'Abergavenny Local History Society'.

We look forward to hearing from you.
