2015 marked the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, and Arachne Press celebrated with an evening of stories, poetry and song on the subject of 'Liberty'. The call out continued until the end of the year, and here are the best of the collected (and eclectic) responses.

Liberty, personal, and legal, is the starting point of this wide ranging collection of responses to the Magna Carta. Some pieces directly relate to specific clauses of the document signed by King John, others are more concerned with how we experience and search after freedom in the 21st Century, particularly with the Human Rights Act constantly under scrutiny.

Featuring work from: Alison Lock, Andrew McCallum, Anna Fodorova, Bernie Howley, Brian Johnstone, Carolyn Eden, Cassandra Passarelli, Cherry Potts, David Guy, David Mathews, Elinor Brooks, Helen Morris, Jim Cogan, Jeremy Dixon, Kate Foley, Katy Darby, Liam Hogan, Nick Rawlinson, Owen Townend, Peter de Ville, Richard Smyth, and Sarah Evans.
