King_John_sealSalisbury Cathedral is home to the finest preserved of four original 1215 Magna Cartas, displayed in a spectacular medieval setting.

A major exhibition opening in February 2015 will present Magna Carta in its historic context and capture the document’s legacy and current relevance. A range of Magna Carta events will take place in Salisbury and Wiltshire during 2015. These include contemporary art installations, a barons’ trail, musical performances, theatre (especially
commissioned by Salisbury Playhouse), a wide range of family activities and a flower festival.
