The Sandwich Medieval Centre is currently closed in accordance with the current government guidelines but we are hopeful that we can open to the public on 22nd May.
In the meantime check on the progress of our big project the Nicholas.
The Trust is most grateful to the Roger De Haan charitable trust for a grant towards the cost of the transforming the Nicholas into a medieval cog. This support will help us progress just as quickly as other circumstances allow.

* Cinque Ports Scribes Donation *
The Cinque Ports Scribes have made a £250 donation towards Calligraphy and Illumination Workshops, held at the Centre, as part of their annual support for a calligraphy associated cause. A list was compiled for suggested materials, both permanent and consumable, that these funds could be used for. These included items that would assist in creating the medieval workshop experience, including wooden boards, ceramic water pots, ceramic pen rests and a set of cut quills. The group voted for this donation at their AGM, from members who were strongly in support of the continuation of this craft, particularly the school workshops. An article featuring the Centre was published in one of the groups newsletters and a follow-up with be included in a future edition. A group visit was planned in September, 2020, but was understandably cancelled. They are very keen to make the visit in 2021.
