Events to mark the 800th Anniversary of
the sealing of MAGNA CARTA
Wednesday, 10th June:
Dr David Starkey will speak in Cartmel Priory at 7.30 p.m. on
“Magna Carta”. This is a public lecture and admission is at the door at a cost of £5.00. Dr
Starkey is willing to sign copies of his book “Magna Carta: The True Story Behind The Charter” (published 23rd April).
Monday, 7th September: Dr Alan Crosby will speak in Cartmel Priory at 7.30 p.m. on
“ King John was not a Good Man: Understanding Magna Carta on its 800th Anniversary”.
Again, this is a public lecture and admission is once again at the door at a cost of £2.50 (no charge for
members of CPLHS).
Monday 28th September: Dr Sarah
Rose will speak on Magna Carta as part of The Priory’s 800th Anniversary
Celebrations. Her talk will be at 11.30 a.m. This
is not a lecture open to all members of the public and admission will only be through The Priory’s booking system – on line or at The Priory.
ALSO on Monday
28th September: CPLHS is presenting brief talks
at 2.00 p.m. and 4.00 p.m. on “The impact of Magna Carta
in Cartmel from 1215” to be followed (in each case) by a guided walk (restricted numbers) around the village.
Once more, admission is only to be through The Priory’s booking system and these events are not otherwise open to the
public. However, it is hoped to repeat the talk and walk for the benefit of CPLHS members in due course.
