What Do We Offer?

We can come to you

A number of members of the Society are happy to deliver talks to local groups and these have been well received by the organisations to whom we have spoken.

In addition to the Battle of Towton, we can offer talks about other aspects of the medieval period and medieval life.

We can also deliver talks about non-fifteenth century history, such as the Siege of York in 1644 for example.

Happy to Zoom

(other on line meeting software is available)

If you are a bit too far away from our part of Yorkshire to allow for a personal visit, we have experience of delivering talks via Zoom or Teams. We can accept donations via PayPal, so we could even consider requests from groups outside of the UK.

You can come to us

We can also offer, in addition to our two public walks per month, both individual guided walks around the battlefield trail, and more tailored bespoke visits to the battlefield and our Visitor Information Centre.

We have delivered this service to Family parties, Societies, U3A groups, WI groups, members of the Armed Forces, and a many individual visitors.

Schools

We have a display of replica period clothing and replica weapons that we can bring into school. Some of these items can be handled by the children (and staff).

We also have a number of presentations that can be delivered. The content is set at a level for the age groups and is discussed with the school staff prior to delivery.
