Ticket price

Join Christopher Lloyd on an epic ride through 800 years in the fight for freedoms and liberties, from the sealing of Magna Carta by King John in 1215 to the present day.

Using a giant 8m-long timeline, specially commissioned by the Magna Carta Trust’s 800th Committee, and a coat of many pockets containing key objects that serve as mnemonics, Lloyd will stop off at 10 key moments in the last 800 years, showing how today’s ideas of freedom and liberty have developed through time. Lloyd uses a coat of many pockets. Each of the 10 pockets includes an object linked to one of the 10 most significant moments in the story of the evolution of freedoms and rights over 800 years. This family talk is ideal for all curious individuals aged 5-105.

The Magna Carta timeline is part of a series of What on Earth books created by Lloyd. John Gordon-Reid gives talks on the 4-billion year story of life on Earth and great moments in 10,000 years of science and engineering on Saturday, April 2, and Sunday, April 3. Lloyd gives talks on Magna Carta – 800 years in the fight for rights and freedoms, best moments in British history from the dinosaurs to the present day, and the complete plays of William Shakespeare on Thursday, April 7, Friday April 8, Saturday, April 9, and Sunday April 10.

All the talks are free and no ticket is required.
