Unlock Magna Carta hits Westminster

  • Jubilee Suite, Houses of Parliament Houses of Parliament Westminster United Kingdom (map)

For our final event, we're heading to the heart of government - the Houses of Parliament - to meet others from up and down the country who've taken part in our Unlock Magna Carta project.  15th June is your last chance to have your say in our Charter for 2015!

The reception is free and open to all.

The real Magna Carta officially turns 800 on the 15th June, so we're marking the occasion by celebrating the full range of activities from our project.

We'll hear from people involved in the programme about how they unlocked Magna Carta in every corner of the UK - from Edinburgh to Lincoln to Plymouth. We'll watch clips from the events, which will make up our documentary, hear from our partners and local activists and talk about how we can continue Unlocking Magna Carta beyond 2015.  

Our theatre projects - Theatre in Prisons and Probation and Mirror Mirror Playback Theatre Co. working with students and refugee groups, will also be giving us one-off performances, inspired by their discussions on Magna Carta.

We will also be given an exclusive preview of our arts project from County Durham and hear from the community groups who produced the pieces. This will be accompanied by music and commentary from our participatory musicians who worked with the project.

Graham Allen, MP and former Chair of the Political and Constitutional Reform Select Committee will also give his view on the direction of political and constitutional reform.

We will be presenting our 2015 People's Charter, bringing together clauses from citizens across the UK for a new Magna Carta for the Modern Day. There will also be the opportunity to add in the final clauses before it is finalised, so don't miss the chance to have your voice included!

All of this will be on offer and much more - along with a glass of wine and nibbles.

Sign up now to book your place.

See you on June 15th!
