UPDATE: The event will take place in the modern marquee on site (both the buffet and the performance). The tables seat 10 people so they will reserve tables for Spice.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT A SPICE EXCLUSIVE EVENT However, we will all sit together.
Richard III is one of the most controversial figures in British history, seen by some as a ruthless murderer and by others as the innocent victim of Tudor propaganda. Richard is also one of the many Kings and Queens directly associated with Tutbury Castle.
The last English king to be killed in battle, his death at the battle of Bosworth in 1485 has often been viewed as the end of the Middle Ages, and the beginning of the Modern period. This dramatic costumed performance is by British Museum curator Dr Gareth Williams
A wonderful evening at one of the country’s most historic (and haunted!) castles. The castle has a remarkable résumé having been established in 1066 by William the Conqueror, and visited by Richard the Lionheart, Margaret D'Anjou (who lived there), The Black Prince, Charles 1st (during the Civil War, when the Castle held siege for 6 weeks), Henry 4th (who was declared King there), Edward 1st, Mary Queen of Scots (as prisoner 3 times), Prince Rupert and Eleanor of Aquitaine.
