Magna Carta carnival commission for Night of Festivals

As part of the plans for Night of Festivals at the Great Magna Carta Weekend in Lincoln (June 2015), ArtReach has commissioned a giant carnival style figure of King John that will parade through the Night of Festivals event and be the centrepiece of a special procession to Lincoln Castle on Monday 15 June. King John will also be accompanied by a giant 20 metre Magna Carta scroll and the King’s seal, a recognition of the process that happened 800 years ago when the Magna Carta was sealed by the King. The commission is being delivered by Kinetika and will be unveiled in Lincoln at the start of Night of Festivals on Saturday 13 June.
