What Information do we need from you?

General enquiries

We need to know the following about you: name, address, contact details and email address.

Bookings, Events and Group Bookings

We need to know a lead booking contact, name, address, contact details and email address. We will also need to know your school/organisation contact details (including name, address and email address) and an emergency contact.

For heritage learning groups and educational trips we will also require specific information about your group. This includes the ratio of children to adults, key stage information/year group and any specific needs of group participants. There is the option to provide dietary, disability and medical information relevant to your visit. This will allow us to tailor activities for SEND groups and those with specific learning needs.


We will ask for your name and email address if you choose to opt-in to email marketing. If you wish to receive leaflets and ongoing direct mail about our events we will need your name and full postal address.

Why do we need this?


This information allows us to contact you and respond to your query. Depending on the type of query we may respond by email, telephone or letter.

Bookings, Events and Group Bookings

We need this information so that we are able to send you information about the booking you have made (including confirmation of visit) and update you with any relevant changes to your booking.

For educational groups we will require your school/academy/college contact details to send you relevant forms, guidance and permissions to help manage and coordinate your visit.

For group/educational visits we will require an emergency contact to ensure we can get hold of the correct person if we need to.

We also ask for social media handles and school/organisation names on our survey. This is so we can share your positive experience with others or review our services to better meet the needs of our visitors.


Should you have chosen to opt-in to marketing updates, we will use your email address and/or postal address to keep you informed about the latest events, offers and news.

Why are we allowed to process your information?

Data protection law allows us to process your information within certain conditions. In this case we are using your consent and contract agreements as the lawful condition for us to do this.

We also need an appropriate lawful reason to process sensitive data. In this case we are processing your sensitive personal data because you have given your consent or agreed to our terms of service to use our facilities or because it is necessary in order to safeguard you

Who will we share this with?

Sometimes we need to share your information with others. We will only do this when it is necessary in order to offer you this service, or if we are required to do so by law. We do not plan to share it with anyone else or use it for anything else. When it is necessary, we may disclose your personal information to the following organisations: Newzapp (our email marketing system), EPOS (our booking system) and Cyber Media Ltd (our website host).

How will we keep it secure?

We will take all reasonable steps to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. Only the people who need to see your personal information will be allowed access to it. Data is stored securely and password protected. We will not send your information outside of the UK.

How long will we keep it for?

We will only keep this information for as long as necessary or as the law requires.


For general enquiries we will hold onto your information until your query has been answered and you are satisfied with the response received. Once resolved, your query will be held, securely stored on our Outlook system for a maximum of two years. In some cases we may need to keep a record of conversations if there is a legal requirement to do so. We will let you know if this is the case.

Bookings, Events and Group Bookings

For school/academy/college/private bookings and events (including the hire of  1485 Tithe Barn Cafe and Heritage Room hire) we would hold your information for a maximum of two years. This gives us time to carry out evaluation and feedback on your visit as well as our business. If you choose to opt-in to receive updates and information following your visit please see below on information regarding promotional updates.


If you choose to opt-in to marketing/promotional updates we will keep your data for as long as you remain opted-in. You can unsubscribe from our marketing updates at any time by using the unsubscribe button on marketing email or request to have your postal details removed from our mailing list by emailing or calling 01455 290429.

What if something changes?

If the information you have provided changes or your circumstances change, please contact Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre by email on or by phone on 01455 290429. If we need to change something like who we wish to share this information with, we will contact you to let you know.
