Alderman Alan Yarrow will present the welcome by the President of Gresham College, after which Lord Judge and Anthony Arlidge QC will uncover not only what the Charter meant in 1215, but also how it has become a talisman for freedom and democracy - and relating to the publication of their book Magna Carta Uncovered in 2014. Stephanie Flanders will conclude by thanking the speakers. This is the 2015 Annual Lord Mayor's Event.
