National Civil War Centre awarded Arts Council England national accreditation

17 January 2018

The National Civil War Centre has been celebrating since achieving full accreditation as a nationally-styled museum from Arts Council England.

Business Manager for Heritage, Culture & Visitors, Carys Coulton-Jones, said “for the National Civil War Centre to achieve full accreditation on its first assessment is a real accolade for the entire team here, but particularly for our collections and exhibitions staff who have demonstrated exceptional standards of practice and have risen to this challenge wholeheartedly.”

She continued, “the Accreditation Scheme sets a quality standard that serves as an authoritative benchmark for assessing performance within the museums sector, so having attained this standard will undoubtedly help us attract even more visitors to the Centre, and to Newark, as a result.”

Assistant Business Manager for Heritage, Culture & Visitors, Carol King, added “we are immensely proud of the level of recognition that we are achieving at the National Civil War Centre. For an attraction that has not yet been open three years, it demonstrates how important the work we are doing is and also allows us to develop even more exciting plans for the coming years as the Centre continues to establish itself.”
