    Richard III was England’s last Yorkist monarch and the last king to die on the battlefield. 

    He played an important role in the history of Yorkshire and York, but following his death in 1485, his legacy and reputation have been hotly disputed. 

    A programme of events held across the region will use the wealth of documents, artefacts and buildings connected to Richard to probe the fiction and the facts of his life and times.

    You’re invited join in and help bring to life this fascinating time of change. Find out more here or download the PDF.  

    The programme is brought to you by a partnership including City of York Council, the University of York, York Minster, York Museum’s Trust, York Archaeological Trust, Richard III Museum, English Heritage, Richard III Society, York Theatre Royal and Visit York.
