Jubilant invited to Magna Carta River Relay
Jubilant was invited to appear in the Magna Carta River Relay a celebration of the 800th anniversary of the sealing of the Magna Carta. Her task was to convey a number of elected citizens from the three sponsoring boroughs, Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, Runnymede and Spelthorne as Charter Bearers. They were responsible for carrying a facsimile of the Magna Carta from Hurley on Thames to Runnymede on board Jubilant. The weather was not too kind to start.
A group of “strolling layers” re-enacted the story of the Baron’s revolt against King John’s misrule.
