King Richard’s body was hastily buried in nearby Leicester within the church of a friary, the site of which become lost and was latterly covered by a car park.

Tony Nicholl, managing director of Churchhill Catering, which is based at Ingham, near Bury St Edmunds, said: “This is perhaps one of the most prestigious catering contracts to have come up nationally so far this year and it say a lot about our company’s ability to deliver the quality standards and value at what is going to be an internationally renowned experience.

“We already run the catering, events and hspitality at Bosworth Heritage Centre so to have both locations which featured so prominently in the final days of Richard III is excellent for us and our local based company”.

Churchill operates catering services from Kent to Scotland. Within East Anglia, its operations including the catering at Bury St Edmunds Leisure Centre and the High Lodge visitor centre in Thetford Forest.
