The Hylton Castle Project will transform the magnificent gatehouse into a community-based, heritage-led visitor attraction celebrating 600 years of history and sharing the stories of those who lived and worked at the castle from the 14th century until the present.  With training for young people, volunteering opportunities, events, outreach, and education programmes, there is something for everyone to get involved in.

UK Acoustic Systems were contracted to supply & install Acoustic Spray Plaster to the ceilings on the Ground and Second Floor within the main Activity/Exhibition Space along with the Cafe. Acoustic Spray Plaster was chosen due to its seamless finish providing amazing reductions in reverberation times whilst blending into the look of the whole ceiling which gave a sophisticated but modern look complementing the heritage behind Hylton Castle at the same time of revitalising the building into an attraction hotspot for not only the local community but also educating visitors from further afield about the history of Sunderland
