2021 is the 806th anniversary of the signing of Magna Carta, on the meads of Runnymede. It was signed by King John and his Barons in AD:1215. King John was forced to accept the Great Charter on 15th June 1215 and reluctantly accepted that there were limits on his power ,including the power to make arbitrary laws. Magna Carta Day is our way of marking the signing of the document that is widely regarded as the foundation of democratic rights and civil liberties in England, and later across much of the commonwealth and the English speaking world.
