ILKLEY Manor House Trust brings Trouvere - the Marshall’s Music to Ilkley Manor House on Thursday, March 21 from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.

2019 is the 800th anniversary of the death of William Marshal, often referred to as England’s greatest knights. He lived through a turbulent age and, thanks to having his biography written soon after his death, a fair amount is known about him. Born the younger son of a minor noble he was held as a hostage by King Stephen in the Anarchy and began his career as a landless knight. Nevertheless, he made his own fortune, transforming himself into a sporting superstar and the friend of kings, who ended up finally ruling as Regent of England under the young Henry III. William is known to have enjoyed music and this programme presents the music he might have known. Tickets from
