Historian and broadcaster Dr David Starkey is set to give a talk about the Magna Carta at the Theatre Royal in Windsor on Sunday, June 7.
Next month marks the 800th anniversary of the sealing of the document by King John at Runnymede. Dr Starkey will speak about its historical impact and its implications today.
Theatre executive director Robert Miles said: “The 800th anniversary will be an occasion of immense local, national and international importance so it is fitting that such a distinguished historian as David Starkey will be heading to Windsor to share his thoughts and knowledge of this world-famous document.”
Dr Starkey will take questions and sign copies of his latest book entitled Magna Carta.
The talk starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £13-£35.
