Your chance to get involved!

In August 2016, artists were invited to consider the themes that emerged from the impact of the re-interment of Richard III on local communities. One year later artist Broadbent Studios were selected to work with communities to refine and finalise plans and designs for the trail. 

The project has been developed to tell the story of the Battle of Bosworth, fought on 22nd August 1485. The trail will showcase five different sculptural works of art which are reflective of the locations that host them and the importance of their role in the story. 

We are inviting you to be part of this exciting project with an open appeal. There are four different levels of sponsorship available or the option to donate any amount of your choice. The money raised will be used for enhancements and additional activities around the trail. 

Everyone that pledges a donation will be acknowledged on our roll of honour. Currently there is no closing date though the Trail expects to open later in 2024.

All donations will be marked with a listing on our roll of honour.
