After-hours event in York celebrates life of Richard III
THE Yorkshire Museum is organising an exclusive after-hours event about Richard III.
Unique in York: Richard III, which takes place on September 24 from 5pm-7pm, will allow guests to handle some of the most iconic objects currently on display as part of the York museum’s Richard III: King & County exhibition, while enjoying champagne, canapés and a talk by curator of archaeology, Natalie McCaul.
Guests can also handle the Middleham Jewel, a gold pendant with beautiful sapphire adornment discovered at Middleham Castle – childhood home of York’s favourite king – and bought by the museum for £2.5 million in 1991.
