British Library Magna Carta ballot goes live!
October 7th sees the ballot going live for an opportunity to see the four remaining 1215 Magna Cartas united at the British Library – the first unification of its kind in 800 years. On the 3rd February, history will be made as the four documents are placed together to mark the commemoration of the sealing of Magna Carta in 1215. The British Library, Lincoln Cathedral & Salisbury Cathedral have pooled resources to stage this one-off, one-day event, sponsored by Linklaters.
1,215 people will be able to visit this exhibition, through the free ballot scheme announced today. Those who are allocated tickets will be welcomed by historian Dan Jones at the Library, as well as given a limited edition gift bag including tickets to other Magna Carta commemorative events.
