Magna Carta Ballot closes 31 October
On 3 February 2015 the four surviving manuscripts of King John's Magna Carta are to be displayed together for the very first time, at the British Library in London. We are currently holding a ballot, in which 1,215 members of the public will win tickets to see the Magna Carta manuscripts side-by-side. But hurry, because the ballot closes on 31 October 2014: don't miss out on your chance to be part of history!
The unification ballot is free to enter. Winners will be welcomed by Dan Jones, historian and TV presenter, and they will receive a special edition gift bag, containing tickets to the forthcoming exhibitions at the British Library, Lincoln Cathedral and Salisbury Cathedral, together with a Certificate of Attendance, sealed in wax with a special stamp. This one-off, one-day event is sponsored by Linklaters, and will mark the beginning of global celebrations to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the granting of Magna Carta in 1215.
So if you want to be one of the lucky few who will see all four Magna Carta manuscripts together next February, don't delay, apply today!
