Case study: Alternative Magna Carta Festival
89up organised the Alternative Magna Carta Festival in 2015. The day was a celebration of civil liberties on the 800th anniversary of the signing of Magna Carta. We wanted to bring together a cross-section of people who would be able to sit in on talks and be involved in workshops with politicians, commentators and artists including Keir Starmer MP, Joanna Cherry MP, Rupert Myers, Nick Cohen, Suzanne Moore, Zoe Williams, Inua Ellams, Natalia Kaliada and Miki Berenyi.
The festival was a huge success with almost 500 attendees and substantial buzz online with 1,413 tweets, 6.4m potential twitter impressions, and 24,552 people engaged on Facebook.
Media coverage of the festival also spanned across several media outlets including the Independent, Londonist and BBC Radio London.
