The Great Charter Festival

Royal Holloway, University of London, Egham Hill, Egham, TW20 0EX
Royal Holloway, University of London
Free event.

A free festival of art and ideas that will take place at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Based in the Founder’s Building, the events will take full advantage of the University’s spectacular High Victorian architecture and setting. The festival will take the form of a summer fair with a radical twist. Catering to a wide range of audiences, it will showcase the vitality of local arts activity but also take a creative and critical look at Magna Carta, with a particular emphasis on its contemporary resonances.

Drawing on local and national talent, our ambitious and diverse cultural programme will feature art and music, talks and workshops, dance and drama. Exploring the history and legacy of Magna Carta, the festival will be a celebration but also an opportunity to ask questions. What do we mean by liberty? How can it be secured and protected? Is it something we already enjoy or that we must continually strive for?
