Leicester Cathedral will be making 200 seats available for members of the general public at each of the three services connected with the reinterment of King Richard lll next March. This represents one third of all the seating in the Cathedral for these events.

With demand for places at the key services expected to be far higher than available capacity, the Cathedral Quarter Partnership Board has agreed a number of principles to help guide the process of allocating invitations. Whilst much focus will naturally fall on the service of reinterment, there are other key components of the seven-day reinterment programme that will provide further opportunities for community involvement.
