    SATURDAY 16 MAY

    The UK’s leading constitutional historian, known for his forthright views, talks about the 13th century agreement that, imperfect though it was, and radically modified in its first ten years, limited for the first time the power of the monarch by stating the basic rights, privileges, and liberties of leading citizens and clergy.

    JOE INNES & THE CAVALCADE

    Friday 8 MAY

    Joe Innes & The Cavalcade are an indie folk band from London led by singer/songwriter Joe Innes, whose offbeat and often irreverent songwriting has gained praise from national radio and press, being described as things like “a master of words” by This is Fake DIY and “just brilliant” by Tom Robinson on BBC6.
