The global event to which the whole world is invited

The 800th anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta was a commemoration of national and international significance. Due to its central place in English history and its impact across the world, a wide range of events and activities took place.

From specially commissioned BBC documentaries, to academic conferences, more than 20 new books, public exhibitions, local community events and a Magna Carta tourism trail, more than 1,000 events took place across the globe.
