Overview

Richard III (1452 - 1485), the last Plantagenet king, remains one of England's most famous and controversial monarchs. There are few parallels in English history that can match the drama of his reign, witnessed in its full bloody intensity.

By returning to original manuscript evidence, Chris Skidmore rediscovers the man as his contemporaries saw him. Rather than vindicate or condemn, this compelling study presents Richard as one of the most important figures in an age of great drama, upheaval and instability.

The author of Edward VI and Bosworth, MP Chris Skidmore is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.

Time: 12 noon

LUNCH: Braised pork belly with cider sauce, apple mash and sautéed root vegetables; Lemon tart with meringue; coffee V: Ovenbaked beetroot lasagne with garden salad
