David Starkey - 'Magna Carta'


  • Date: Sunday 29th January 2017
  • Time: 7.30 pm

The UK’s leading constitutional historian, known for his forthright views, talks about the 13th century agreement that, imperfect though it was, and radically modified in its first ten years, limited for the first time the power of the monarch by stating the basic rights, privileges, and liberties of leading citizens and clergy.

There are few more stimulating thinkers, and few who understand better the way the most powerful have thought throughout our history. His assessment of the situation then, and how our constitution stands today exactly 800 years later, will amaze and challenge you.
