Events in London – Saturday 6 April

Need some inspiration for 6th April? Richard the Lionheart died on this day in 1199. He spent most of his ten-year reign away on the Crusades and only spent six months in England, so it seems a little unfair that he’s managed to bag such a prominent statue outside Parliament. Why not go and see if you can find it?
