A two-day festival themed around the medieval battle which changed the course of English history, an ancient manor house with links to the Gunpowder Plot and Britain’s only surviving travelling theatre have all been shortlisted as finalists in awards celebrating the best of Leicestershire tourism.
Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre, the 1620s House & Garden and the Century Theatre – all run and managed by us - have been selected to compete in the Leicestershire Promotions Tourism & Hospitality Awards 2018.
We are very proud of what we can offer the people of Leicestershire and visitors from further afield when it comes to history, heritage and culture.

It is a well-deserved tribute and I wish them every success on the night of the awards.Person:Councillor Richard Blunt, cabinet member for heritage, leisure and arts
