Guildhall Art Gallery will be hosting a new exhibition, No Colour Bar, on Black British cultural heritage and public art, immigrant identities and creative voices from the 1960s to the 1990s. Come along and visit Bogle L’Ouverture’s bookshop recreated inside the gallery.

The Globe Theatre will be presenting nightly productions of King John, Shakespeare’s classic study of the 'bad king', staged in the atmospheric surroundings of Temple Church as part of the Magna Carta 800 celebrations.

Enjoy family-friendly cultural activities at an Open House weekend workshop, Magna-Crafta, celebrating ancient craftsmanship, medieval architecture and centuries old Gothic designs. Children will get to create their very own medieval buildings as part of the competition.
