David Starkey talks Magna Carta

Worcester Editorial 15th Jul, 2015 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016   0

ONE OF the country’s most famous historians is coming to Huntingdon Hall.

David Starkey will make his appearance at 7pm on Saturday, August 15, to talk about the Magna Carta.

Known for his forthright views, he will share his knowledge and thoughts on the 13th Century agreement that limited the powers of the monarch for the first time, stating the basic rights, privileges, and liberties of leading citizens and clergy.

Having presented some of the most popular historical TV series, such as Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and The Monarchy, David Starkey shows an unrivalled understanding of some the post powerful people in our country and their thoughts throughout history.

He will go through the life in times of the Magna Carta and how it compares to society today, 800 years later.

This Cambridge educated, respected LSE Lecturer and Radio 4 debater, promises to both amaze and challenge the audience.

Tickets cost £16.95 and can be bought from Huntingdon Hall box office, by calling 01905 611427 or visiting www.worcesterlive.co.uk.
