Richard III's reburial to be marked in York

The city of York has announced its plans to mark the reinterment of Richard III at Leicester Cathedral on 26 March.

As the Yorkshire Post reports:
A Solemn Choral Evensong will be held at York Minster, starting at 5.15pm, at which are all are welcome. Following the service at 6.20pm, a procession led by the civic party and senior clergy will walk from the Minster’s South Door, across the Piazza, along Stonegate to St Helen’s Square and which will end outside the Mansion House. 
The public is invited to line the route to pay their respects to the king. The Lord Mayor of York, Coun Ian Gillies, will address the procession. 
On March 27 a new display on Richard III will open at the Yorkshire Museum, in York, looking at the myths which have shaped modern views of the king.
