2,000 tickets will be up for grabs next week for an event as part of King Richard III's reinterment.
Tickets for the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre event on Sunday 22 March go on sale next Tuesday.
Half of the tickets are seated. They will be available on a first come first served basis from 10:00am.
The service, which forms part of the cortege procession, will run from two sites - the Caterpillar plant in Peckleton Lane, Desford and the Triumph motorcycle factory at Hinckley.
We want to offer an opportunity for people to experience an event of world significance and we're expecting a lot of interest for Bosworth tickets. The reinterment of Richard III will be a momentous occasion and I am sure it will resonate throughout the county for years to come.
