What’s on

2019 Special Events

During the year we hold special events and activities at the Visitor Centre and information including dates and times can be found on this page.

Our Quest is available every day to help our younger visitors discover the incredible story of King Richard III.

Don’t forget – pay for your first visit and you can make return visits for a whole year!

Medieval month is back…

24th – 26th
Knight School
Before you head back to school, join our medieval knight school and see if you’ve got what it takes to be victorious on the battlefield. You’ll get the chance to be trained by our knight in armour and you can also prove your skills against a squire.

On Saturday and Monday, lessons will be at 10:30am, 12 noon, 1:30pm and 3pm and on Sunday, at 10:30am and 12 noon.

Knight School is suitable for children aged 9 and above. Children must be accompanied throughout Knight School by an adult, who will be their sparring partner! We have limited space and so each session will be for a maximum of 12 children; places are available on a first come, first served basis.

31st August – 1st September
Fighting Knights
Stand clear as our fabulous, fearless Fighting Knights battle it out in front of you!
