Magna Carta Celebrations (2015)

Magna Carta Celebrations

In spring 2015, members of Freewheelers represented us at two spectacular events marking the 800th anniversary of signing the Magna Carta.

The Freedom Game Opera

This took place on 12th May 2015 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Freewheelers members Matthew, Jamie, and Luke performed with over 1000 Surrey residents in front of an audience of 3000 including the Earl and Countess of Wessex. Luke was one of the main solo singers. Read more on the Surrey Arts website here.

15th June – Runnymede

The anniversary was also celebrated on site at Runnymede where the three Freewheelers performed extracts from the Opera. They were also joined by Terri who took part in a very special performance of Owen Sheers’ poem ‘Or In Any Other Way’, which can be viewed below. The celebrations were led by Her Majesty the Queen and attended by hundreds of dignitaries, MPs and other VIPs.
