2014 Conference

We are pleased to announce our 2014 annual conference “The Age of the Yorkists”.

Our 2013 tour of “The Battle of Bosworth: Tudor’s Perspective” was a hit with our patrons and regulars resulting in excellent reviews. However, due to the amount of people who signed up, we were unable to follow the exact route that Tudor would have brought his army.  This year we will be restricting our numbers to 14 so we don’t incur any restraints on weights from some of the local towns and villages.

Our 2014 route will be as follows:

October 10

12.00 Noon – Meet at the Tithe Barn at the Bosworth Heritage Center for welcome and brief introduction.

12.15 – Depart Centre and travel by minibus to Atherstone.
