The Magna Carta in Greenwich

On Monday 25th March 2019 at 7pm the Greenwich Society is unveiling the authorised facsimile of the important historical document Magna Carta, together with  a translation, in its new home in the heart of West Greenwich, the location of the estate of Geoffrey de Say, one of the rebel barons who confronted King John. Attendance is free at West Greenwich Library (146 Greenwich High Road, West Greenwich, London SE10 8NN).
Also, in June 2015 the Greenwich Society celebrated the 800th anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta at Runnymede with an event at the University of Greenwich. Join the Officers, Executive Committee and other members - as well as representatives of the Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust and Greenwich Leisure Limited - for conversation and a drink to mark this occasion, where Magna Carta can now be viewed by all.
