2021 Special Events

During the year we hold events and activities at the Visitor Centre and information including dates and times can be found on this page. All of the events on this page are included in the price of admission to the Visitor Centre and, once paid for, our tickets can be used for unlimited visits for a whole year (terms and conditions apply, ask our team for more information when you visit). Events and craft activities do take place on specific dates so please check dates when planning a visit.

Our Boar Hunt, Cafe craft station and shield rubbings are available every day to help our younger visitors discover the incredible story of King Richard III.

Medieval Playtime

Meet the Swordmaster
