King Richard III and some Interesting News



As some of you might know I live in the city of Leicester and for the last couple of days the local council has been getting rather excited, well by the council's standards, about a King of England. They is a link between the city and King Richard III in that he left the city to go to Bosworth and ended back there after the battle a bit dead. Anyway enough of the history lesson and what has this got to do with VBCW, well my friends I will tell you, the link is the Ian McKellan film and the inspiration behind this great period. So back to King Richard and Leicester, well as I said the local council is rather excited as they have a team of archaeologists digging around a council owned car park as there is evidence that this is where he is buried, which would be amazing if it was. Now I just have to think of a way to get involved and spread the word of VBCW to the general public. 

Here is a link from the BBC website, Local BBC News
