For a number of years the Fieldworkers have organised a month-long festival of archaeology in Leicestershire and Rutland, overlapping with the Council for British Archaeology’s annual national festival.

The full programme is:
- Tuesday 14 July, 7.30pm Richard III: The King Under the Car Park by Mathew Morris.
- Thursday 16 July, 7.30pm Revealing Grey Friars: Leicesters Lost Franciscan Friary by Mathew Morris.
