York Dungeon casting their own Richard III

Richard III's royal remains may be set to stay in Leicester but York Dungeon has been doing its best to bring him north anyway. They held open auditions this weekend for a new Richard III character.

The Dungeon was closed in September 2012 after it was damaged by floods.

Helen Douglas, general manager at York Dungeon said, "I’m delighted that, despite all the commotion, it’s the York Dungeon that’s going to be able to bring back Richard III back to his rightful home, here in Yorkshire."
