King John at Worcester Cathedral

King John at Worcester Cathedral

2015 marks a number of anniversaries, including the significant 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. The original charter was sealed by King John at Runnymede on 15th June 1215. Some of King John’s favourite hunting grounds were in Worcestershire and he visited Worcester Cathedral often to worship at the shrine of St Wulfstan. Just before his death at Newark in October 1216 John declared in his will that he should be buried at Worcester Cathedral. His tomb lies in front of the spectacular High Altar and the effigy on his tomb is unique – it is a life like image of him and is the oldest royal effigy in England.

There is a varied programme of events at Worcester Cathedral during 2015 around King John, Magna Carta and Liberty. These include an exhibition from early in March; talks by King John’s tomb for booked groups; a ticketed evening lecture ‘Bad King John? Did he do good at the end? The relevance of Magna Carta in 21st Century’. The programme also includes a series of LiberTea talks (with tea and cake!) on the subjects of Suffragettes, the Battle of Evesham and Slavery. From September 2015, relics from King John’s tomb including his thumb bone and fragments of his clothing, as well as his original Will, can also be viewed by appointment in the Cathedral’s medieval library.
