Thousands of people have joined together to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta in Lincoln, home to one of four remaining copies of the 1215 charter.

The Great Magna Carta Weekend continues until the official anniversary on Monday, June 15, when ‘King John’ will take part in a last parade at 12.30pm.

Despite typical British wet summer forecasts, the crowds have been out enjoying colourful parades through the city centre, the Lincoln Barons’ Charter Trail and unique performances.

Lincoln Castle was transformed into a vibrant live performance venue on the evening of Saturday, June 13 for the Magna Party.

The ticketed event, headlined by Britain’s Got Talent winners Diversity, also featured local and regional winners from this year’s Dance Factor, as well as Bollywood dancers and ‘rubbish’ percussion groups.
