Magna Carta highlights

We celebrated the 800th anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta in Runnymede Meadows on 15 June 2015.

In the run up to this prestigious anniversary we ran a campaign comprising an online course, mobile app, quizzes, podcasts,  events and much more. The campaign culminated in the Great Charter Festival



We created two quizzes: Are you a king, bishop or baron? and test your knowledge of the local area. Take them again here.
