As I said in the car park thread, it should be a fully authentic Catholic medieval ceremony in Latin and all.

When it's done it will be a piece of living history that we're never likely to see again. It will raise lots of money in Leicester, create a lucrative tourist market for Leicester in the future. In should be a splendid citywide medieval pageant with juggling jesters and hot pie men and with the local rogues in the stocks. A day full of medieval colour and fun for all the family!

Leicester already have the things you mention, but most of it is kept from outsiders!.

I am not sure now, but at one stage the tourist information for Leicester was from a call centre in Cornwall or Devon. Many mistakes were made, including asking an adviser to look out of the window to see if it was raining in Leicester at that moment in time :O(

From fm's link on the first page:

"The Minster's intervention came just hours after the leader of Scarborough Borough Council, Tom Fox, said Leicester could not be trusted to look after Richard III's remains.

"To be perfectly blunt, the people of Leicester misplaced him for more than 500 years," he said.

"Would we really wish to entrust his remains to them again? I think not.""

Sour grapes...?!

Leicester didn't misplaced them, the council just put them under a car park for safe keeping. If you want to blame anyone, think of Herrick the Lord Mayor of Leicester who built a mansion over the grave, and even put a 3'00" stone pillar to indicate the spot!.

SillBill ... I would willingly allow my eyes to be blind-folded [and 'twirled' 720 degrees] before taking aim.

720, that's cheating!

A twirl anticlockwise for 360 degrees, then a twirl clockwise for 360 degrees would make it fair.
