Description

Lincoln Castle Revealed is the working name for a project to transform Lincoln Castle into an all season, year round internationally important heritage visitor attraction. Visitors to Lincoln Castle will be able to purchase three types of ticket: the first will cover just the Wall Walk; the second will cover Magna Carta and the Victorian Prison; and the third will cover the Wall Walk, Magna Carta and Victorian Prison. Entry to the Castle grounds will be free, except on event days. Lincoln Castle wishes to develop a tablet-based experience (working title ‘Castle Explorer’) for visitors to use within this newly restored Victorian Prison area of the Castle. The area allocated to this experience is part of the old female wing of the prison.The experience will offer visitors two potential routes into content and exploration: A ‘sit back’ experience in a ‘break out’ space – known for the purposes of this tender as the ‘lounge’ – that enables visitors to explore short engaging stories that demonstrate the breadth, depth and richness of the Castle’s history, A more active ‘stand up’ experience that helps visitors explore important archaeological finds on display in adjacent rooms.Visitors will be able to access and move between the two options. Both options will help visitors understand how the individual stories and objects fit into the wider context of the Castle’s history over time and offer visitors a delightful, playful and engaging way to explore the stories that takes full advantage of the device’s capabilities and the visitors’ presence on site. Lincoln Castle is seeking a supplier to design and develop the tablet-based experience.
