A FILM screening originally planned for last month will take place in Haworth on Friday (April 14).

The Lost King was due to be shown at West Lane Baptist Centre on March 10, but was postponed due to snow.

Now the film, which tells the true story of one woman’s determination to succeed against all odds in locating and recovering the lost remains of King Richard III, is being shown at the centre at 7.30pm this Friday.

The archaeological discovery in 2012 of the skeletal remains of King Richard under a municipal car park in Leicester followed years of detailed research by Philippa Langley and the Looking for Richard Project, and it led to his subsequent ceremonial re-internment with full military honours in Leicester Cathedral.

The film screening is being supported by the Yorkshire branch of the Richard III Society.

Its chair, Matthew Lewis, says: "This film acknowledges Philippa’s dogged determination, the contribution of many society members and the groundbreaking work of the late Dr John Ashdown-Hill, who traced the living descendants of Richard III who share his DNA. This research enabled the definitive identification of the king’s remains."

Two members, Alex Marchant and Alice Mitchell, will be at the screening offering free literature and Ricardian-themed books for sale.
