Towton Battlefield Event (April 1st, 2012) & News

 

<< Reminder for all around and near Towton >>

1st of April, on Palm-Sunday like the event in the year 1461 itself, the event organized by the Towton Battlefield Society commemorates this fateful battle between the Yorkists and Lancastrians.

 

The Towton Battlefield Society, presented here in this article on the KRA-website, prepared lots of activities for the whole family.

Hopefully the weather for the event will not match the one 551 years ago and we wish all participants a wonderful and enjoyable re-enactment of the Medieval times and this memorable battle.

The FanstRAvaganza 3 is an event, dedicated to the actor Richard Armitage and also, to his fans. So the articles of the week contain,

  • fan-art,
  • fan-interviews,
  • fan-showcases,
  • fan-perspectives,
  • and lots more …

(I think you get the idea of it.)

 

One special stream of articles, the KingRichardArmitage tagged team, was dedicated to our project to support Mr. Armitage in his wish to make a film about King Richard III.

 

The articles of the week contain individual fan-views on the historical background, the revealing of reasons, why they support the project or would like to see it realised. Each article has a fresh and unique approaches to King Richard III & Richard Armitage.

 

If you did not so far, give them a try and find out more about the supporters of the KingRichardArmitage-Project.
