RICHARD III will be the subject of the Wyre Forest Historical Research Group's next talk in Kidderminster.

Max Keen will be giving his talk entitled Richard III. Hero? Murderer? Loyal Brother? and Tuesday in the Corn Exchange at Kidderminster Town Hall.

Gay Hill, publicity officer for the group, said: "This time last year we had just heard about Richard III, the King whose body was found in a Leicester car park.

"Max Keen, who is a very popular speaker and comes dressed in period costume, will discuss whether Richard was a hero, a villain or simply a man of his time.

"He will also reveal some surprising links that Richard had to the Midlands. I am sure it will be a very entertaining talk and have no doubt that it will be very popular indeed."

The talk starts at 2pm and everyone is welcome to attend.
