Welcome to Bosworth1485   

One day, Two kings

Bosworth1485 is creating a new landscape of world-class artworks telling the stories of 4 remarkable places and their role in this incredible story.

Bosworth1485 captures the energy, community spirit, positivity and commitment shown on the day in 2012 when the mortal remains of Richard III’s body were exhumed from under a car park in Leicester and in 2015 reinterred in the cathedral. As the cortège wound its way through the beautiful West Leicestershire landscape, it put a spotlight on this piece of countryside and its communities for one day.

We are now capturing that moment and presenting it for future generations.

Driven by a dynamic and committed partnership of Leicestershire Promotions, Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, the local communities and key stakeholders, Bosworth1485 celebrates the stories of people and places and the role they play in shaping history.
