Once the renovations are complete, The Castle will become a premiere venue that will host a
wide variety of commercial, entertainment and cultural events
Music is the heart of The Castle. Our vintage pipe organ and unique spaces create the perfect atmosphere for live music. All music genres will find a home at The Castle.
Movies will be shown on our big screen during our unique "dinner and a movie" events. These events will tantalize your tastbuds and stimulate your eyes and ears with entertainment that is coordinated to the flavors of the evening.
The Rock River Philharmonic and the Turtle Creek Chamber Orchestra will each enjoy an acoustically outstanding setting for many events. After the existing stage is upgraded in phase three, the Sanctuary will be able to host the Symphony Orchestra with full catering and drink service for upcoming seasons.
Youth-oriented events and concerts to benefit our non-profit corporation, The Youth Unite. This use of the facility was our single most motivating factor in pursuing this project.
Complete wedding event planning and hosting services including catering, photography, video and music. Hourglass Media was begun as a wedding photography and video company, and Jody has decades of experience as both a wedding planner and an event coordinator.
Live music events. Studio G and Greg Gerard are well known and respected among professional musicians in the Chicago/Madison/Milwaukee live music scene. Greg’s resume reflects many years of live performance experience and management.
Educational field trip programs with hands-on crafts, theater, dance and music experiences will be developed and marketed to school districts and home school organizations.
Since first proposing this project, we have enjoyed the enthusiastic support of the City of Beloit as well as several key organizations such as Visit Beloit, the Rock River Philharmonic, Stateline Pregnancy Clinic, The Youth Unite and Miss Andrea’s Dance Theater are a few of the business entities that have expressed a desire to partner with The Castle to host events and promote the facility.
