YFCC Secretary Chairing York Museums Trust

Foundation Trustee and Honorary Secretary James Grierson has recently been appointed as Chair of York Museums Trust. He is pictured in the Castle Museum’s much-loved Kirkgate in front of a retail name that will be very familiar to the Consortium’s older members (including James). Significant work is under way to prepare for a major extension and refurbishment to the Castle Museum in a project which will better reveal the story of York’s Castle, its Debtors’ and Women’s prisons and the extraordinary richness of its collections. The proposal will form a key part of the Castle Gateway regeneration scheme which will create one of the North’s most beautiful public spaces.
