Memorial Lecture 2024

This year the North Mercia Branch of the Richard III Society presents a very special lecture in memory of Dr John Ashdown-Hill.


An Afternoon with Philippa Langley

The Princes in the Tower - Solving History's Great Cold Case


Historian Philippa Langley reports on the five years of

The Missing Princes' Project


Date:       Saturday 6th April 2024

Venue:     The Civic Hall, Nantwich

Time:       2:00pm. Doors open 1:00pm

Tickets:    £15 (including refreshments)


Honoured Guest: Matthew Lewis, Chair of the Richard III Society

Also via Zoom: Annette Carson, Dr David and Mrs Wendy Johnson - the remaining members of The Looking for Richard Project


Dr John Ashdown-Hill was the academic who discovered the mtDNA of King Richard III, resulting in the search and discovery of the mortal remains of the King in the Social Services car park in Leicester in 2012 - the site of the former Greyfriars Friary.


Without John's groundbreaking DNA research, the search for Richard III would never have began or the King discovered, so we hold this day in memory of a very special man.
