Everyone has a ghost story … what will yours be?
De Montfort University’s Heritage Centre is located on the ground floor of the Hawthorn Building of the university campus in the city close to Leicester Castle.
Built around the medieval arches of the Church of Annunciation, the Heritage Centre tells visitors the story of The Newarke and how this historic location developed during Roman settlement, expanded into a significant religious site during the 1300s and is believed to be where King Richard III’s body was laid out for public view, before he was taken to Grey Friars Church.
King Richard III
DMU is closely linked to both the history of Richard III and to the efforts to celebrate his discovery and bring his story to life.
His death at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 brought to an end one of the most fascinating and turbulent times in British history. The defeat at the hands of Henry Tudor effectively ended the Wars of the Roses and the Plantagenet dynasty.

To round off the evening guests will be invited to participate in a psychometry session (the ability to read information about an object by touch). We are asking all guests to bring with them a personal item which they know the provenance of, such as a piece of jewellery, spectacles, an object that might have been passed on to you from a relative. The item should be no larger than an A5 envelope. Do not tell anyone the story of the item.
