From the BBC, 20th November, 2014
A “spectacular” river pageant on the River Thames has been announced to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the sealing of the Magna Carta next year.
A flotilla of boats will sail from Bisham Abbey to Wraysbury in Berkshire on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 June.
Thames Alive is helping to organise the event, the group behind the Queen’s Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant in 2012.
The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead said: “The world’s eyes will be on us in June next year.”
