EVENT: The Alternative Magna Carta Festival

Posted May 28th, 2015 in Forthcoming events by sally

‘On Saturday 13 June, in the centre of Clerkenwell, 500 people will gather to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta. This Alternative Celebration will recognise the importance of Magna Carta in curtailing the powers of the executive, and challenge and appraise modern Britain’s attitude to civil liberties. There will be poets, writers, artists, social activists, MPs, human rights lawyers and dissidents – for the Magna Carta celebration with teeth – and where better than Clerkenwell, London’s historic centre of dissent?’
