Events will be held in Lynn to mark the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta.

A two day event is planned on Saturday and Sunday, June 14 to celebrate the anniversary which will include street enactments and a King John treasure trail.

John reputedly lost the Crown Jewels, somewhere in The Wash on his journey through the Fens.

There will also be opportunities for people to learn more about Lynn’s connections with the king as the King John Cup, Sword and a facsimile of the charter he granted to Lynn will be on display.
