Details

Christmas 1460 and Richard Duke of York hasn't even had chance to play with his Christmas presents of devour the customary box of Roses sent to him at Sandal Castle. He's drawn out of the comfort of the castle not only is Christmas ruined he doesn't even get to see in the New Year, the course of history is changed forever but his legacy lives on through his surviving sons.

Following a successful whistlestop tour of the Wars of the Roses in September expect more historical tales of the Medieval Period taking you through the Wars of the Roses 1455 to 1487.

Aimed at all ages from 8 to 88.

As this talk is held just before Christmas (and on the 1st day of release for the new Star Wars movie) we'll throw in some bits about what it was like to celebrate a Medieval Christmas.

Refreshments available during the interval.
