Join us on Sunday 14 June at 3pm as the whole nation sits down to tea to celebrate, debate or reflect on their liberties.

Monday 15 June marks the 800th anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta, which was the document that laid the foundations for the rights and representation that we enjoy today.

To commemorate, we are asking the nation to take a moment to celebrate, debate and reflect on those rights which we very often take for granted but which people throughout history have campaigned to make happen or fought to preserve.


Organise a LiberTeas event

Your LiberTeas event can be anything you want it to be – a picnic in the park, a Sunday lunch, a debate, a street party, an open day, a historical walk. Want to help your local community get involved?

You can use the opportunity to commemorate Magna Carta or another historical date or democratic person that inspires you such as the Chartists or Churchill, or you can take the chance to debate future changes.
