Premier League trophy on its way to Bosworth

Celebrating Leicester City's own bit of history

The FA Premier League trophy is coming to Leicestershire County Council’s Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre on Monday (February 13).

Visitors to the battlefield site near Hinckley can view the glittering silverware which Leicester City won in spectacular fashion during the 2015-16 season.

At Bosworth from 1.30pm - 3.30pm, the trophy will be on display in the Heritage Room with the opportunity to see it free of charge, and open to all visitors.

Staff at Bosworth are also encouraging people to check out the award-winning exhibition and, for more details on ticket prices, visit www.bosworthbattlefield.org.uk

As well as being able to have a photograph taken with the trophy, there will also be the opportunity to meet Filbert Fox which should add to the thrills for youngsters on half-term holiday.

 

 “We're delighted to be able to offer our visitors the opportunity to see the FA Premier League trophy and share in Leicester City’s success last season. Both the Richard III story which we tell at Bosworth and the success of the football team attracted significant worldwide attention.
 

 

Last year, Bosworth was named best small visitor attraction in the Leicestershire tourism awards and tells the dramatic story of the Battle of Bosworth, which took place in August 1485, and marked a major turning point in English history.
