Sound Radio interviewed Dr Mark Baker about Gwrych Castle, “I’m a celebrity” and the future of the Gwrych Castle.

Dr Baker spoke of how the castle intrigued him as a school boy; which in turn became a passion.

He talks of how he was contacted by ITV, how local workers have been deeply involved in the project at the castle and how the programme has helped local business. He also gives his predications for the outcome of I’m a celebrity (recorded 26-11). Was he right?

The castle has a long history but it is the future that Dr Baker is looking towards. He is looking for inspiration from local people on how they would like the castle to develop.

While the castle received a fee of around £300,000 for staging the event, more is needed to bring it back to its former glory.

Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust have launched a go fund me page and they would love some help in their mission.
