The Alternative Magna Carta Festival

An afternoon of freedoms, literature, Britishness, arts, protest, digital rights and more across three venues in Clerkenwell


  1. Hundreds gathered for the Magna Carta celebration with teeth - presented by 89Up and Little Atoms with support from Free Word - and where better than Clerkenwell, London’s historic centre of dissent?

  2. Time Out and Londonist helped garner excitement for the festival in the days beforehand.

  3. And there was a huge amount of buzz building on social media

  4. And then we were off!

  5. Zoe Williams, author of Get It Together: Why We Deserve Better Politics was in conversation with writer Dawn Foster on how to fix our broken political system.
