Great Charter Festival


On Sunday 14 June 2015, we presented a summer fair with a radical twist. Around 4,5000 visitors joined us on campus to explore the extraordinary 800 year legacy of Magna Carta through art and music, talks and workshops, dance and drama. With hands-on activities and performances, food and drink, and a wonderful crafts market - there was something for all the family!
