HRH The Earl of Wessex will officially opens the National Civil War Centre in the restored Old Magnus Building and handle Nottinghamshire’s very own crown jewel.

The centre created by Newark and Sherwood District Council is the first in the UK telling the complete story of the deadly 17th century British Civil Wars when crown and parliament clashed.

HRH will tour the galleries and see how the Grade II* building – which dates to 1529 – was rescued as part of the £5.4m project. 

He will also inspect a majestic golden 2,000 year old Iron Age necklace – or Torc – found near Newark and now on public display, before unveiling a plaque in the Tudor Hall to mark the occasion.
